Agritechnica: Another round of tech and ideas

With more than 30 halls and 2900 exhibitors, it is an understatement that there's plenty to see. This year Farm Industry News is working to share concepts of interest, even if they may not be coming to North America any time soon.

This time out we share some announcements from Claas including tech that's available now and some that'll be on the way soon. You'll also find a deeper look at a tool we shared a little about in the Monday gallery from the original developer of the tech who worked with Vaderstad but has their own software and system for a precision seed meter.

When it comes to electronics the number of screens in the different hauls is astounding. We stopped by a firm that makes screens to look at some of their latest tools only to find they're working wirelessly too. We even came across a new product for 2016 that offers a potential combine performance boost.

The easy answer to the question "did you see it all" is no, and we focused on logical tech, even though some may not make it to the U.S. we either found it interesting or we felt it worthwhile from a trend standpoint.

A few key words we kept coming across - ISOBUS and sensors. For Claas their use of sensors has helped earn the company medals at this year's show, but also shows how creative a company can be when an engineer has the kind of information that can come from a sensor.

Check out this gallery to learn more about what we saw. And don't miss the gallery we posted Monday.
