AGCO Corp., Duluth, Ga., unveiled its farm in a box (FIAB) initiative, which offers a package of essential farm equipment, including a tractor and implements together with support mechanisms such as parts, workshop tools, training and expertise to ensure sustainable and productive machinery operations.
Some of the equipment is packed inside a box (a modified shipping container) that can then be used as an office or workshop.
FIAB is a solution for small-scale farmers to gain access to machinery needed to transform their operations.
FIAB offers a 45-80hp tractor and implements such as a ripper, disc harrow, trailer and planter to carry out land preparation, planting and crop transport, plus parts and workshop tools for service and maintenance.
An AGCO Operations Support Center provides technical advice and guidance.
