The US AE50 Awards are determined and administered by the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) and select the top agricultural machinery product innovations each year. Source: AFDJ eNews

The awards

From the many entries submitted an expert panel selects approximately 50 products for recognition.

The award-winning products are those ranked highest in innovation, significant engineering advancement, and impact on the market served.

The products featured represent the diversity of agricultural and biological engineering, as well as the variety of companies of all sizes and specializations that continue to bring advanced technology and exciting innovations to the marketplace.

This year’s AE50 Award recipients join the ranks of many who, for nearly three decades, have been honored for their ingenuity in product development and so saving producers time, costs, and labor, while improving user safety as well.

The interest in new technology and innovative applications of existing technology remains constant.

Many of the featured products are patented and their names trademarked. Some may become household words.

Others may be further improved as technology advances, and perhaps, with time, will win another AE50 Award.
