All exhibiting companies at AGRITECHNICA can enter the awards competition and submit their innovations which will be examined and discussed in depth by an independent commission. The decision on whether a product is worthy of the Innovation Award AGRITECHNICA is taken by simple majority vote.
The following criteria are decisive for the award of the Systems & Components Trophy:
- Practical significance
- Benefits in profitability and processes
- Benefits to environment and energy use
- Benefits for work load and safety
The winners of 2021 will be chosen by development engineers. These development engineers are employees of companies exhibiting at AGRITECHNICA 2021. The development engineers will be nominated in response to a call by DLG to exhibiting companies to designate their chief development engineers for the vote. Companies exhibiting at Systems & Components are excluded from this call.
