The 2023 Farm Progress Show has come to an end and will long be remembered for its spectacular weather, record crowds and for the wealth of innovation and technology that manufacturers rolled out.
More than a dozen new tractors were introduced, including three new electric models. Autonomous technology, sprayer drones, sprayer technology and planters and more were on display for farmers, by more than 600 companies, including 150 companies new to the Farm Progress Show.
Indiana Prairie Farmer Editor Tom Bechman laughed when he said, “We knew this year was coming. With the pandemic and supply chain problems, companies kept innovating even when they couldn’t build it all. Now we’re seeing what they came up with.”
Bechman was one of eight Farm Progress editors who fanned out across the 90-acre show site to scour the grounds for new products, hiking from booth to booth to find everything that was new in 2023 – including a few prototype products that may not be available for purchase or order just yet, but were too interesting not to share.
In addition to Bechman, the team included Allison Lund, Indiana Prairie Farmer intern; Pam Caraway, Farm Press; Holly Spanger, Prairie Farmer; Betty Haynes, Prairie Farmer; Chris Torres, American Agriculturist; Tom Bechman, Indiana Prairie Farmer; Kevin Schultz, The Farmer; and Jennifer Carrico, Wallaces Farmer.
The team will roll out more than 200 new product stories over the next few weeks but for now, check out their favorites in this slideshow, and get an even better look in the video below.
