The National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Kentucky, showcased cutting-edge technology including drones, aftermarket kits, and combine technology. 

The show featured a range of drones from various manufacturers, including Hylio, Pegasus Robotics, and Bestway Ag. These drones are designed to assist farmers with tasks such as crop scouting and spraying. Trimble also showcased its new smart spraying system, which uses cameras to detect weeds and reduce the amount of herbicide needed. The system can be installed on existing sprayers and is expected to be available for customers in late 2024 or early 2025. 

  • Combine technology was also a highlight of the show, with the New Holland CR11 combine and the Case IH AF11 combine drawing large crowds. The CR11 combine is equipped with the Intellispread radar system, which automates the spreading control to ensure even residue coverage behind the combine. The Case IH AF11 combine features a new automated deslug procedure, which clears the combine of blockages in minutes, rather than hours.
  • AGCO showcased a range of new precision offerings, including Fendt’s 30-foot momentum planter, which is equipped with SmartFrame technology. The company also debuted aftermarket kits such as the SimplEbale, which retrofits onto Massey Ferguson Square Balers, and Fendt’s IDEAL Air Blaster kit, which removes debris from the combine’s feeder hose.
  • 360 Yield Center presented its autonomous irrigation system, 360 Rain, which has been shown to boost yields by over 65 bushels per acre in some fields.
  • The National Farm Machinery Show provided a glimpse into the future of farming technology and highlighted the latest innovations in drones, aftermarket kits, and combine technology. These advancements have the potential to increase efficiency and productivity in agriculture, ultimately benefiting farmers and the industry as a whole.
