2013 FinOvation Awards: Seed traits, autonomous systems, electronics and more

Our 2013 FinOvation Award winners are 20 new products that represent the wide range of inputs farmers purchase for row-crop farming. The products range from a new corn rootworm trait and a seed treatment co-formulated with bacteria to a new Russian-designed combine and a variable-rate planting system. Farm Industry News chose these products as the most innovative agricultural products of 2012, based on reader interest. All of the new products appeared in Farm Industry News or on during the past 12 months. Featured in this gallery are the winners in the seed trait, seed treatment, fungicide, herbicide, telemetry system, cloud-based management, cloud-based communication, tools, autonomous vehicle and grain handling categories. The other 10 FinOvation award winners are located in another gallery.


Readers are invited to select their favorite products out of all 20 FinOvation Award winners. Based on the voting results, Farm Industry News will honor the Product of the Year winner at the National Farm Machinery Show held Feb. 13-16, 2013. Voting takes place on and will be open by early January.
