If you want to know the next big equipment trends in farming, you will find them at the National Farm Machinery Show (NFMS) in Louisville, Ky. Manufacturers use this show to introduce their latest machinery and new technology.
Last year, Geringhoff revealed its concept corn head designed to harvest corn from any direction regardless of row spacing. During an unveiling, a large crowd of farmers watched and listened to company representatives explain the new technology. If you attend the NFMS, you’ll be able to see new equipment like the corn head and ask questions firsthand. The show has more opportunities from which you can learn what’s new in the industry. Farm Industry News hosts seminars about new product trends. This year, we are hitting four hot topics for crop farmers.
