The Gleaner® Super Series of combines has added to its long list of industry accolades. Gleaner, the industry-leading transverse rotary combine brand from AGCO Corporation (NYSE:AGCO), was awarded the AE50 New Product Award for the Perforated Cascade Pan found in 2015 S8 Super Series combines.
“Innovation is important in the agriculture industry, because it’s our most important tool in keeping up with ever-changing industry trends,” said Kevin Bien, AGCO brand marketing manager. “With grain farmers facing shortened harvest windows, many are forced to take the crop off early and at higher moisture levels. When developing the perforated cascade pan, we set out to help farmers manage that problem. We’re honored that our quest to help farmers overcome harvest challenges has been rewarded with this important award.”
The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) sponsors the AE50, the only awards program of its kind, which celebrates product innovations in the areas of agricultural, food and biological systems. An expert panel of engineers selects up to 50 products for recognition. The award-winning products are those ranked highest in innovation, significant engineering advancement and impact on the market served.
