In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, AGCO is taking the fight to the field to stand up to breast cancer. Working with one of its largest dealers in North America, Ziegler Ag Equipment, AGCO built a full-size 2015 model Challenger MT865E track tractor that sports the pink-for-the-cause paint finish to increase awareness of breast cancer.
AGCO Corporation has updated the Challenger E Series with more comfort and operating ease.
“Challenger gives row crop innovators, small grain farmers and specialty application farmers improved performance, comfort, versatility and reliability with the MT700E, MT800E and MT900E Series tractors,” AGCO says in a release. “The 2016 MT700E, MT800E and MT900E Series lead the field and deliver increased productivity for row crop, broad acre, and specialty crop farming practices.”
AGCO Corporation partnered with local AGCO dealers across the United States and Canada to raise nearly $100,000 in support of wounded service veterans. In a little over four months, from mid-May to the end of September, this money was raised for wounded service veterans. A $500 donation was made in the name of each dealership involved on behalf of AGCO for their involvement with the program.
AGCO Corporation and Appareo Systems have agreed to enter a joint venture, building on the existing IAS (Intelligent Agricultural Solutions) business structure, to allow for breakthrough agricultural innovation.

The proposed joint venture will build on the momentum of Fuse Technologies, AGCO’s approach to precision agriculture and precision machine management. Appareo will contribute to the initiative through research and development, Intellectual Property (IP) generation and advanced technology concept development, which will be deployed through AGCO Technology Solutions.
AGCO is in the midst of a multi-year, $42 million upgrade and expansion to its engineering and manufacturing facility in Jackson, Minn. The motivation behind the project, which kicked off in 2013, is to further improve the quality of the agricultural equipment built there, as well as the efficiency and production capacity of the facility.
“Farmers expect the best when they purchase AGCO equipment built here in Jackson, and we have a history of meeting those expectations,” says Eric Fisher, AGCO director of operations. “With the continuous improvements we’re making here and at other AGCO facilities, we continue to provide our dealers and farmers the highest-quality agricultural equipment available.”
