Gathering ideas for Australian Agriculture at ARGITECHNICA

Have you heard of Agritechina? It is well renowned for being the leading trade fair for agricultural machinery world-wide. For innovative products launching onto the market or to find the trusted brand you’ve relied on for so many years.

Now, for years and even generation farmers have been know to stick to their guns and continue with their colour whether it is a John Deere, Case IH or Claas. You can see that the colour has little impact these days as products are all innovating to improve the overall output by each machine. With the Australia market it seemed to be that the bigger machine the better it was from 20ft fronts to everyone running 40ft as their standard when running over a few crops.

These events are an excellent way to see what is new to market and what we can expect to see within Australia within the coming months if not already. With the different climate within Australia the machinery can be put its limits as we’re a hot, dry and dusty climate and that’s without the current drought conditions.
