Rounding up harvest and hay toolsRounding up harvest and hay tools

Slideshow: New products from the National Farm Machinery Show offer unique ways to bring in the crop, and manage it.

9 Slides

Farm Progress has opened up the description of this collection of new products a little wide, but these do involve different aspects of the harvest. From combine heads to innovations in baling and bale handling, you’ll find a few items here of interest.

Keys to look for in this grouping include an interesting bale innovation. You’ll also find a new corn head with a redesign that reduces weight without giving up performance. And you’ll come across tools for taking care of bales when feeding time comes, including an innovation that can help turn round bales into profitable square bales.

Where possible, pricing is included, though some products were too new for pricing to be available. And don’t miss the tool at the end of the slideshow that offers an aggressive way to stop resistant weeds — kill the seeds at harvest.
