At AGRITECHNICA, DLG will be presenting 'DLG Agrifuture Concept' awards for pioneering agricultural machinery work and future visions. Visionary agricultural machinery solutions provide crucial stimuli for the future viability of global crop production. Engineers across the globe are working on technical solutions for the future of agriculture. Not all of their ideas and concepts make it to the finished product stage. Often, technical or legal constraints limit their development to market maturity. Many of these concepts nevertheless have the potential to provide inspiration and to stimulate farmers and engineering colleagues to think in new ways. This award underscores the relevance of this pioneering agricultural machinery work to the future of agriculture in five to ten years.
