Precision Land Management added to T7 Heavy Duty tractors
By Ryan Ridley
New Holland is bringing more precision agriculture technologies to farmers by adding its Precision Land Management (PLM™) Intelligence platform to its T7 Heavy Duty series of tractors. The company now offers PLM™ Intelligence in its T7, T8, and T9 Heavy Duty series.
The PLM™ Intelligence platform provides farmers with next level connectivity, productivity, and remote viewing, allowing you to use the in-cab IntelliView™ 12 display for mapping, navigation, fleet management, and information sharing.
“The T7 Heavy Duty with PLM™ Intelligence series was developed with the customers’ needs at the forefront,” says Ken Paul, High Horsepower Marketing Manager for New Holland Agriculture North America. “We listened and addressed first-hand feedback from operators in what key items they are looking for in their equipment. Integrating the new generation of PLM™ Intelligence to the T7 HD only elevates the tractor. Farmers now can easily do more in their operation and be remotely connected to dealers and support services increasing overall efficiency and profitability.”
The addition of PLM™ Intelligence into the T7 HD series marks a shift from traditional farming practices to agriculture 4.0 for New Holland, and the company wants to help farmers with this transition.
PLM™ Intelligence will be included in all New Holland next-generation equipment, part of the company’s strategy to integrate digital technologies for a smart and connected agriculture industry.
“These new developments are the result of New Holland’s strategy to be more and more connected to our customers,” says Carlo Lambro, New Holland Brand President. “Servitization and digitalization are the gates to the future. They have made possible to integrate the physical presence at the wheel with an array of digital services that mean we can always be at our customer’s side, helping them to get the job done.”
New Holland users can register their machines and retrieve technical data through the MyNewHolland App and can manage their fleet and farm data in the MyPLMConnect portal.
Farmers using the MyPLMConnect system receive real-time information from individual machines, as well as analyzed data to make data driven decisions.
New Holland is also launching its new PLM Cygnus receiver, which is essential to the enhanced autoguidance architecture on tractors featuring PLM™ Intelligence. PLM Cygnus provides farmers with accurate and trustworthy guidance through its reliable positioning, compensation for terrain variations, and how fast it can acquire guidance lines.
