Fendt Momentum Virtual Crop Tour to premiere on YouTube on 20 November

AGCO You TubeAGCO Corporation will premiere the Fendt Momentum Virtual Crop Tour at 10 am EST on 20 November 2020 on Fendt TV

The programme, airing on YouTube, will recap findings from the fifth year of AGCO Crop Tour on-farm planting demonstrations designed to help producers improve stand establishment and optimise yields.

“The goal of the AGCO Crop Tour is to help growers understand how soil and equipment interactions impact crop establishment, growth and yields,” said Jason Lee, AGCO agronomist and farm solutions specialist. “Through the Virtual Crop Tour, growers can see the difference best planting practices can make on their farms. Proper planter settings and the right agronomic decisions for field conditions can help them attain the even emergence and consistent stands needed for optimum yields.”

On 20 November, the growers will have the opportunity to ask questions and get answers in real time from AGCO agronomists and product specialists.

The 2020 AGCO Crop Tour on-farm locations were planted with pre-production models of the new Fendt Momentum planter in side-by-side plots. Some locations included plots to demonstrate how the planter’s Load Logic weight-management system combines with Precision Planting technologies to deliver planting accuracy while limiting soil compaction.

The AGCO Virtual Crop Tour will include educational segments on:

The effect of various planting depths on seedling emergence, plant population and yield

The yield benefits of seed spacing accuracy versus skips and doubles

Correct row unit downforce

The impact of soil compaction and pinch rows on stand establishment and yield

Reducing compaction at planting

Live answers to viewer questions will be provided via the chat function during the event.

The 2020 AGCO Crop Tour plots were planted at Pontiac, Illinois; Stewartville, Minnesota; Casselton, North Dakota; Baltic, South Dakota; and Chillicothe, Ohio, to demonstrate best planting practices and soil compaction management in a variety of soil and field conditions.
