AG ENGINEERING AWARDS ANNOUNCED
Source: Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) news release

Resource magazine and the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers have announced the winners of the 2013 AE50 awards.

The awards recognize the world's best technology innovations introduced in 2012 for the agricultural, food, and biological systems industries. ASABE Executive Director Darrin Drollinger notes a strong showing of information and electronic technologies among the year's standouts. "The winning products this year focus heavily on controls, electronics, management systems, advanced machines and input/output monitoring," says Drollinger.

The AE50 awards will be presented at a luncheon on January 28, 2013, during ASABE's Agricultural Equipment Technology Conference, in Kansas City, Missouri.

Beginning in 2013, ASABE is partnering with AG CONNECT and its owner, the Association of Equipment Manufacturers, to honor the "best of the best" with Gold and Silver awards chosen from among the 2012 and 2013 AE50 award winners. A limited number of these new awards will be presented at the opening ceremonies of AG CONNECT Expo & Summit on January 29, 2013. The Gold and Silver awards are a new level of recognition for winners of the AE50 awards.

Now in its 26th year, the AE50 awards program has been encouraging and applauding engineering achievements since 1984. It is the only one of its kind. Submitted by companies of all sizes and varying inventive focus, the 50 winning products bring clear advancements to the marketplace, such as improved efficiency and user safety, and reduced labor and costs. Entries are evaluated by a blue-ribbon, international panel of industry experts in technology, design, and product development. Contact Sandy Rutter at ASABE for information about the nomination process.
