Danish Agro Group has obtained the distribution rights of AgXeed from the Netherlands. Under this agreement, the Danish Agro Machinery Division and affiliated companies in Denmark, Sweden, and Norway will sell and distribute AgXeed autonomous robots.
The management and support of related digital services will be facilitated in collaboration with AllAgBots, a subsidiary of Thorsen Teknik A/S. AllAgBots brings significant expertise in facilitating connectivity among various brands of farm machinery used in precision farming.
Jens Skifter, Group Director in Danish Agro Machinery: “We firmly believe in our responsibility to support the digital transformation of farming. We find that AgXeed stands out in the robot segment due to its CE approval to operate autonomously and without supervision in the field. This aspect is crucial for optimizing fieldwork, especially considering the declining availability of skilled operators in the farming industry. Additionally, digitalization enables online service and task management, allowing farm managers to prepare data and tasks remotely, minimizing the risk of errors,” he states.
Anastasia Laska, CCO at AgXeed, views this new partnership as a highly beneficial opportunity for all parties involved. “As a relatively new presence in Northern Europe, we are delighted to partner with an esteemed group like Danish Agro. While digital online services transcend borders, we require partners who are fluent in the local language and well-versed in the farming legislation of each respective market. Moreover, we can build upon the existing expertise of our former partner, AllAgBots, where Torben Thorsen has been instrumental, ensuring continuity in our existing relationships,” she says.
Also Torben Thorsen, CEO AllAgBots, is delighted that the company is joined by Danish Agro in introducing autonomy in Scandinavia.
“Digitalization is not only continuing but also accelerating, and farmers require support to ensure connectivity in their fields. Although major brands are striving to establish standards and harmonization, the software often poses challenges in ensuring the practical implementation of precision farming”, Thorsen concludes.
