Lemken and Krone hold global press camp

Assembling 127 journalists from 27 countries is no small task. But the folks at Krone and Lemken did just that, bringing together the contingency to the town of Bük, Hungary, located about a one-and-a-half hour drive from Vienna, Austria.

The dual-company event brought with it plenty of opportunities to see the latest in tillage, crop protection, seeding and hay and forage equipment. Quite a task for two full field days, but the vast open farmland of the region was the perfect spot to see equipment in action.

Both German-owned companies indicated that the joint press event is a perfect opportunity to show the world just what each company has to offer, meet with engineers and management, and trade notes with journalists around the globe on trends and topics of mutual interest.

And while some of these products may not make it to the U.S. market, it was definitely a highlight to see the latest engineering marvels from these two storied companies.

Check out this gallery of equipment in action, with all images from Mark Moore.
