Farmers attending AG CONNECT got a chance to look over some award-winning technologyies today. On Tuesday afternoon, the Gold and Silver AE50 awards were presented by the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) to recognize the most innovative products of the year.


The first Gold AE50 award presented at the ceremony this afternoon went to AGCO Corporation for its WR Series Self Propelled Windrower (photo, above.) 


"The windrowers feature electro-hydraulic controls operated by a virtual terminal. The technology provides more precise control over the primary windrower functions while incorporating fully integrated GPS autosteering with field speeds up to 16 mph--45 percent faster than AGCO’s previous-generation windrowers," ASABE said in a release.


Stay tuned for more ASABE award info. All the winners are exhibiting here at AG CONNECT.
