Latin America Ag statistics program expands

Participating member companies doing business in Latin America's Ag sector now have even more management tools at their disposal.

AEM recently added three more Ag product market statistics programs in the region. They include:

  • FEDX – Combine Draper Head - Flexible – A crop-gathering unit with a flexible frame, designed to collect and transfer crop into the threshing area.
  • FEPX – Combine Platform, Flexible Frame – A crop-gathering unit designed to collect and transfer crop into the threshing area while following ground contours.
  • FE52 – Cornhead – A gathering unit for self-propelled combines used to harvest standing rows of eared corn.

The Flexible Combine Draper Head (FEDX) program is the first to be published in Latin America that reports the shipments to all countries in the Caribbean, Central and South America.

The Combine Platform, Flexible Frame (FEPX) and Cornhead (FE52) programs were launched in Brazil only. Participating members are reporting monthly shipments for this equipment down to the state level.

AEM’s new Latin America Regional Ag Statistics program officially launched last November. 

Market statistics programs give participating member companies a way to determine their market share in a particular state or country as well as information they can use for tracking product movement, shifts in trends, forecasting, production and business planning.
