Technology at your fingertips.

That’s the sales pitch for many businesses in the agtech sector, whether they are start-ups or well-established machinery manufacturers.

And for CNH Industrial brand New Holland, the inaugural AgSmart Expo at Tamworth, New South Wales, recently was a prime opportunity to set up simulators and show off the accessibility on offer in the latest tractors.

The simulators proved popular with farmers and students alike at the event.

New Holland’s simulator provided a taste of the PLM Intelligence system offered in its T9, T8 and T7HD tractors.

New Holland PLM product segment manager Chris Camilleri said the SideWinder Ultra armrest and the IntelliView 12 display delivered a new generation of technology to Australian farmers.

“It’s a brand new user interface with a lot of high-end graphics,” Mr Camilleri said.

“We’ve really simplified the user interface – we are trying to reduce the steps to get the customer onto the display and make those changes.”

Remote connectivity was also a talking point on the New Holland stand.

Mr Camilleri said by introducing MyPLM Connect to the tractor, dealerships were now able to connect to customers remotely.

“We can transfer data from the field back to the farm office, that’s agronomic data as well as machine fleet data,” he said.
