Development engineers in agricultural technology distinguish innovative systems and components.
Systems and components play a key role in the development of innovative agricultural technology. The "SYSTEMS & COMPONENTS Trophy - Engineers' Choice" is awarded to systems or components with a new or significantly improved concept that can contribute significantly to the development and realisation of products - new processes are made possible or existing methods are improved.
- High-quality industry award, presented by development engineers from the global agricultural machinery sector
- Business networking between system and component manufacturers and development engineers
- Worldwide attention from purchasers and agricultural machinery companies
- Year-round quality communication in the competitive environment of systems and components
