The company's collaboration with top equipment OEMs, including Bobcat and numerous implement manufacturers, and its expertise in integrating 'smarts' into tractors and implements underscore its role as a digital transformation leader in agriculture.

Jorge Heraud's rich background in AgTech, combined with his educational credentials from Stanford University, positions him as a key asset to Agtonomy's ambitious agenda. This strategic addition to the Board of Directors marks a significant milestone for Agtonomy, reinforcing its dedication to transforming industrial markets that are in desperate need of automation.
