Four Case IH products have been selected to receive the prestigious 2013 AE50 awards.
Sponsored by the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE), the AE50 awards annually recognizes the top 50 most innovative new agriculture products introduced this year. This year's Case IH award recipients include the 2013 Axial-Flow combine cab, the pivoting grain spout on the Axial-Flow combine, the Nutri-Placer 920 and the Precision Disk 500 air disk drill.
The award-winning products were announced on the ASABE website. They were recognized at the ASABE Agricultural Equipment Technology Conference on Jan. 28 in Kansas City, Mo.
"Using the Case IH customer-driven product development process, our company develops products that help farmers be ready to tackle the challenges and opportunities of today's evolving agriculture industry," said Kyle Russell, senior director of marketing for Case IH. "We're honored that ASABE has recognized multiple Case IH products with this distinction for 2013."
For two decades, the AE50 awards have recognized the best products introduced in the agricultural, food and biological systems industries. An expert panel selects the winners based on commercial impact, contributions to agriculture and engineering, and advancements in engineering and technological significance. To qualify for the distinctive awards, each development must have been produced, advertised and made available for sale in the 2012 calendar year.
