BOONE, Iowa (Sept. 1, 2016)AGCO Corporation (NYSE:AGCO), a worldwide manufacturer and distributor of agricultural equipment, is offering a wider range of harvesting options for corn growers with the introduction of the 3200 Series corn heads.

“We know that our producers harvest in many different conditions, and each producer has a unique set of requirements for their operation. The 3200 Series corn heads are our newest solution to advance each operation’s productivity and profitability,” says Caleb Schleder, AGCO tactical marketing manager.

The 3200 Series is available in 6-row 30-inch and folding 12-row 30-inch configurations. Each version is available with a chopping option. The 12-row folding models were introduced at the Farm Progress Show in Boone, Iowa, August 30, while the 6-row units will make their debut at the Ohio Farm Science Review, September 20, in London, Ohio.

“This new header is a direct response to listening to our customers’ requests. Our goal with the 3200 Series corn head was to provide our producers the options they need, whether it be a 6-row corn head to match grain-handling capacity or a 12-row folding head to enhance the efficiency of transport from field to field,” Schleder continues.

The 3200 Series heads are available for Massey Ferguson®, Gleaner® and Challenger® combines.

Folding head makes transport easier
With the crucial harvest window time frame, our operators are consistently working to make the harvesting process faster and more efficient. The 3200 Series 12-row folding corn head is designed specifically for the grower who is looking to decrease the amount of time it takes to detach and road the head separately.

“The ability to move the combine from field to field without detaching the corn head amounts to time saved and increased productivity, this allows many of our operators to allocate resources to other key functions during harvest,” Schleder adds.
