The jury evaluates the relevance of the innovations which must benefit the farmers life. Such innovations must also be commercialised.
The concept of the “Machine of the Year” was initiated in 1997 by the DLV media group. The jury is pan European; composed of journalists from 16 different agriculture media, representing as many as 11 countries.
The award was remitted in the presence of:
Mr Dai Watanabe, Kverneland Group CEO & President. (center)
Mr Thomas Bortz, KvGroup Deutschland, Managing Director
Mr Dominik Haselhorst, KvGroup Operations Norway, Manager for Product Management
Mr Odd Braut, KvGroup Operations Norway, New Design team leader
"From road to perfect ploughing in a record time".
Kverneland 2500 i-Plough®, Isobus mounted reversible plough, enables any relevant plough settings for perfect furrows from the tractor cabin. On board, the Isobus screen clearly shows how to adjust the plough within finger tips
Kverneland innovations also apply to the design of the plough and to mechanical aspects that simplify the working life of the farmer
Agroteknikk Gold Medal
The “Machine of the Year” award actually follows the Gold Medal granted two weeks earlier by the jury for Agroteknikk to the Kverneland 2500 i-Plough®. The actual Agroteknikk fair takes place 26-29th Nov. in Lillestrøm, Norway.
Kverneland = "innovations"
Kverneland has a long tradition in developing solutions that contribute to the farmers welfare. The Machine of the Year award acknowledges the leading role of Kverneland in the plough industry.
