First look at new tools from Agritechnica

Slideshow: We’ve rounded up several products because they’re interesting, or headed to the states in 2018.

Agritechnica looms large on a lot of farmer bucket lists. The 27-building indoor show, hosted in Hanover, Germany, every other year, draws hundreds of thousands of visitors when the gates open at Messe Nord. The nearly weeklong event offers a wide range of products for all facets of agriculture — from components (like PTO shafts and transmissions) to processing equipment and more.

In this first slideshow from the event, we’ve pulled together products that are either headed to the U.S. or are of interest due to their technology-focused nature. Each is interesting in its own right, offering farmers a look at what's coming in the world of tech and tools.

Not everything is a robot or high-tech, though; there are new implements offering other advantages as well. So click through this slideshow for our first update from Agritechnica, and check back next week for our second installment.
