AGCO Corporation this week launched nearly 20 new products designed for North American farmers. Farm Industry News got a private media preview of these products a few hours before they were unveiled to dealers at the Kansas City, MO, convention center.

This was the largest product launch in AGCO’s history, covering all the major categories of farm machinery. Company execs said the launch gives the message that the company continues to be a formidable player in the North American machinery market, offering a full line of machinery through its family of brands.

We’ll give you an in-depth report on all of these products in future postings on our website. But for now, here’s an overview of the products you’ll see from AGCO in coming months.
