So I read through the release. My basic take on it:
They have made the combine smarter so it calibrates itself 7 different ways so the data that they collect free of charge through JD-Link is more accurate. Change a few things in the cab to distract the farmer too maybe. Oh yeah, surely a modest price increase in there too.
It seems to me the priorities are way wrong here. What about this actually makes the farmer more money? Must be a lot of money in all this data or some large plan for using it down the road, because some of these companies are going to great lengths to collect it. I seriously doubt whatever that turns into will be for the benefit of the farmer either...
