Ag engineering awards

KANSAS CITY, Missouri – This year’s 50 top innovations in agricultural engineering have been awarded, including a larger than usual number of products that could potentially be useful in Western Canadian ag.

Each year, a panel of agricultural engineers from the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE)  chooses what it feels are the most innovative products to reach the international marketplace. The association’s Resource Magazine sponsors the awards.

The best of these will be chosen for further recognition at the ASABE technology conference held in conjunction with Ag Connect Expo in Kansas City this week.
