Finding hidden treasure in the Agritechnica halls

Farm shows, at their heart, are about connecting products with customers. Even a major event like Agritechnica at its core makes those connections - sometimes it's a company with a distributor who will eventually reach the customer. Traveling through the halls on Day 2 of their fantastic journey, photographer Mark Moore and Willie Vogt, editorial director, pushed through more halls looking for the new, the interesting and more.

What they found ranges from new seat technology aimed at improved operator comfort to monitoring technology that can be expanded to keep track of a range of inputs from grain quality to fuel management (in time). There's even a new tire concept that mates the idea of tire and track into one unique unit that offers a range of features.

One thing Agritechnica draws is the prototype. Yesterday's gallery carried a few prototype machines on display, and there were more to be found on Day 2 as well. The Fieldball concept brings a whole new method forward for defeating farm compaction, and there's no axle involved. And companies are working on new ways to use apps and tablets to better set up equipment.

So read on, check out the photos and learn more about the products and information we found at the show.
