DLG Agrifuture Concept Winner 2023

For the second time, the DLG is awarding the "DLG Agrifuture Concept Winner" for pioneering agricultural technology work and visions for the future. The award focuses on the technical possibilities in the next five to ten years and takes a look at the realistic chances of implementation. The DLG has now announced the shortlist of 10 nominated innovations for the award. From the shortlist, five concepts will be selected in a second round by DLG expert committees and international representatives.

The award ceremony for the winners will take place on 14 November at AGRITECHNICA.

The AEF AgIN is the next step towards harmonising the digital world of farming. Driven by the aims of AEF ISOBUS, AgIN's ultimate goal is to create an interoperability solution for online platforms. It will enable providers of digital services to interconnect on a reliable high-quality basis whilst leveraging existing AEF solutions to create even more synergy for digital business.

In cooperation with AgTech 2030 (Linköping University) (Hall 5, Stand C37)

The Nonstop Battery Concept (NBC) is an electric drive system for agricultural machines that handle loads such as fertilisers, grain, seed, manure or water. The machines have sufficient battery capacity to ensure efficient farming and, at the same time, do not have to make separate stops to charge the batteries. This is possible thanks to interchangeable containers with integrated batteries.

(Hall 9, Stand C30)

In cooperation with AgDoIT GmbH i.G. (Halle 9, Stand C30), EXAgT GmbH (Halle 25, Stand B14), exatrek EXA Computing GmbH (Halle P11, Stand D84), geo-konzept GmbH (Halle 8, Stand B06), Hanse-Agro GmbH (Halle 9, Stand C30), Fachhochschule Kiel Fachbereich Agrarwirtschaft (Halle 24, Stand A24)

ISO Farm Research (IFR) is a new and innovative digital system for automating and boosting on-farm research based on the ISOBUS standard. Planning and the establishment of new experiments and measurement trials will become more user-friendly and safer with this new technology so that more knowledge and insights can be 'harvested' in agricultural practice.

 

CLAAS KGaA
(Hall 13, Stand C04)

Designed for harvesting machinery such as combine harvesters, the partially electric drivetrain reduces fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. In addition to the diesel engine, it includes an electric motor/alternator and a rechargeable battery. Since the electric motor cushions load peaks, the diesel engine can be operated at reduced power and speed with greater efficiency.

 

crop.zone GmbH
(Hall 25, Stand H23)

In cooperation with John Deere Walldorf GmbH & Co. KG
(Hall 13, Stand C44)

Dual.Volt.24M uses the electric-hybrid herbicide technology for crop treatment without non-selective herbicides. It is a combination with a broadcast and band spraying system for sustainable high efficiency. The 24 meter working width and adaptive applicators enable desiccation, intercrop and weed control as well as camera-controlled inter-row treatment that flexibly adapts to different row spacing and plant sizes.

 

Fachhochschule Kiel Fachbereich Agrarwirtschaft
(Hall 24, Stand A24)

In cooperation with Christian-Albrechts-Universität Kiel (Halle 24, Stand C19)

AgTech CoPilot, an intelligent architecture for hybrid agricultural machinery, is a novel system that integrates tractors, drones and robots into a collaborative network. It is the embodiment of precision farming, ensuring efficient and sustainable agriculture. The innovation lies in the system's ability to enable seamless interaction between these technologies, optimising their usage.

 

Fendt AGCO GmbH
(Hall 20, Stand B39)

Fendt's E-Vario weeder concept presents a weeder that is optimised for combining with an electrically powered tractor. The weeder incorporates electrically driven weeding modules that optimise power consumption. The modular set-up enables easy adaption to multiple farming conditions and crops. AI-based plant and weed detection and two cameras for monitoring the process establish the foundation for full autonomy.

NEXAT
(Hall 3, Stand C04)

In multi-cropping, several plant species are grown simultaneously in the same field. Different plants with different growing and harvesting times are combined. This method offers various crop production advantages. The NEXAT crop production system enables the technical and economical implementation of multi-cropping.

 

TeeJet Technologies
(Hall 9, Stand C06)

TeeJet SprayScan® ePT is an embedded automatic spray quality monitoring system that helps spray applicators to monitor the spraying process in real time. It consists of an embedded laser and camera in a single housing. The laser illuminates and images the cross-section of the target spray and automatically collects the data. The results are automatically uploaded to the app.
