Trends from world’s leading farm machinery trade show

Rural Exchange 09/12/2017

Featuring over 2,803 exhibitors – it’s no wonder some of the world’s leading innovations for agricultural machinery make their mark at trade fair ‘Agritechnica’.

CB Norwood brand manager Kyle Baxter recently visited the trade fair in Germany, which showcases the cream of the crop in agricultural machinery.

Mr Baxter and CB Norwood retail manager Garry Watt join Rural Exchange to discuss Agritechnica and the machinery trends to look out for.

The international fair is visited by over 450,000 people, providing visitors with forward-thinking and smart technologies in agricultural machinery.

“It’s kind of hard to explain to people who haven’t been there - the sheer size of it,” he says.

If Mr Watts could sum up the trends from the show, he would say monitoring data.

He explains that harvest management monitors and nitrogen sensors were some of the most exciting innovations featured at Agritechnica.
