Trimble Agriculture and xFarm Technologies partner up to help farmers to enhance farm management
The partnership between Trimble Agriculture and tech company xFarm Technologies provides greater integration between their technologies and even smarter solutions for precision farming
7 November 2022 – Trimble Agriculture and xFarm Technologies announced a new partnership today. The global leader in precision farming technology, Trimble can now offer farmers additional valuable and efficient solutions through integration with the xFarm app developed by tech company xFarm Technologies, which uses its digital platform to support and simplify the work of 120,000 farms spread over 1.7 million hectares in more than 100 countries around the world.
The partnership will combine Trimble Agriculture’s leading solutions for precision farming and Vantage resellers’ expertise with xFarm’s smart farming system, helping farmers gain more insights into their cultivation, save time with connectivity and connect easily to mixed-brand fleets.
On the one hand, farmers using Trimble’s technologies will be able to use data collected with their farm machinery. All farmers using Farmer Core, the Trimble system to manage precision farming data, will have the opportunity to connect the xFarm app to their telemetry module.
At the same time, farmers using the xFarm app will access even more data about vehicles equipped with Trimble systems. Overall, the partnership provides greater integration between the two technologies through a native connection of Trimble Displays and the xFarm app. Thanks to the partnership, Trimble customers will be able to send and receive data between the two systems, allowing for interoperability.
The partnership will initially focus on Italy and Spain, two European countries where xFarm Technologies has a strong presence, but will soon extend to the whole EMEA region. Its official launch will be during the EIMA International exhibition, which will take place in Bologna, Italy, between November 9 and 13.
Matteo Vanotti, CEO of xFarm Technologies, said: “This partnership makes me and the whole team very proud. Trimble is a top player that has been working for years to make the global agriculture sector more dynamic and innovative. Above all, the partnership between Trimble and ourselves is great news for farmers, helping them become more competitive and resilient as they face major challenges such as the climate crisis and rising energy prices.”
Matteo Zucchelli, Regional Sales Manager of Trimble, said: “The partnership with xFarm Technologies allows us to enhance our workflows and platform, making Trimble’s solutions compatible with one of the most successful tech companies in the Smart Agriculture industry. At Trimble we know farming is hard, but Trimble Agriculture solutions can help make it easier. Overall, the connectivity and information exchange between Trimble and xFarm will enable farmers to improve the efficiency, productivity and data management in their operation.”
