Technology affects every aspect of the Deere and Co. enterprise from the first manufacturer and testing of a tractor to the wireless monitoring system used by farmers to track crop yield. Even though their roots are in agriculture their products span goes into turf, construction, forestry, and even financial services. Their spirit of innovation is inspiring them to change basic designs and practices used by others in the industry to keep setting the trend for other corporations. For example, they are literally reinventing the wheel on turf products (regular riding lawn mowers). These wheels are different than any other wheels on a mower; its unique construction offers a consistent height, smooth ride, and a more durable tire with three times the life of other tires.

Their farming equipment can now be installed with global positioning systems and remote view accessing from laptops and mobile devices to allow farmers to control and track machinery’s locations and productivity. The sensors now installed in the tractors can give the farmer reliable data on the quality of the soil.
