Material handling, application and seeding tools at work

Slideshow: From a manure-scooping alley cleaner to compact drills, you'll find a diverse line of products focused on moving, applying and seeding.

Walking the trade show halls of a major event brings forward a lot of new ideas. Arranging those ideas into a logical slideshow can sometimes be a challenge. In this lineup of new and interesting products from the 2020 National Farm Machinery Show, we’ve widened the circle on the material handling, seeding and application side of farming.

In agriculture, you're often moving or applying something. Whether that’s seed through a drill, crop protection products through a sprayer or manure through a spreader, farming can be a study in material handling. What you’ll find in this slideshow is a diverse range of tools that meet a range of different needs around the farm.

If you’re raising livestock, you’ll find manure handling tools from compact spreaders to a giant alley cleaner that can make short work of big barn jobs. If you’re seeding smaller plots or doing pasture repair, we’ve featured some versatile new drill models. You’ll also find fertilizer spreaders, crop sprayers and more.

Check out the slideshow to find products that may offer just the right solution for a tough material handling job on your farm.
