Eight 2022 AE50 Awards were recently presented to John Deere for excellent innovations that help boost productive agriculture.

The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) awards the AE50 Awards each year to the 50 most inventive product-engineering innovations in the food and agricultural business, as selected by international engineering professionals.

Winning products are lauded for their contributions to the advancement of technology in the marketplace. These technological advancements aid food processors and farmers, improve efficiency, increase profitability, ensure safety and enhance quality.

Last March, John Deere held one of its largest product launches. See & Spray Select, a  machine-integrated solution that allows farmers to spot spray weeds on the untilled ground was one of the award-winning innovations presented.

The product makes use of control technology and an advanced camera to differentiate color on uncultivated ground. In addition, it detects weeds and sprays them on the spot.

MY22 John Deere 9 Series Tractors were also honored with an AE50 Award in 2022. These tractors assist large-acre grain producers to start and finish their task during optimal seeding and planting windows.

9 Series Tractors run on John Deere PowerTechTM 13.6L engine to haul broader implements in a fast and precise manner. Farmers may make crucial management changes to boost crop yields, cut input expenses, and cultivate more acres of land in a shorter time when they use integrated John Deere precision ag technology.

Last March, John Deere was the prime agricultural firm to introduce an integrated liquid-fertilizer-delivery system on both planter and tractor. The ExactRate liquid fertilizer system has integrated plumbing, integrated ExactRate tanks and factory-installed fluid tanks on the planter.

John Deere also got the aforementioned award for its MY22 1775NT 24-Row Planter. The product is equipped with  features that boost fertilizer capacity and onboard seed while reducing soil compaction.

In comparison to earlier versions, the new commodity tanks have a 150-gallon boost in liquid fertilizer capacity and a 30-bushel boost in the onboard seed. 

John Deere’s HDF Drapers is also a recipient of the AE50 award. These drapers offer outstanding ground-following capability for on-and-off ground harvesting. This enables customers to recover more crops while meeting the high-capacity demands of today’s combines.

The brand’s drapers is the industry’s first combine header to merge a hinged frame with flexible cutterbar and hydraulic suspension between the center frame and wings; a hinged frame with vertically articulating wings; cut-height adjustment, in-cab and on-the-fly-float pressure. 

Another AE50 award went to John Deere for its Quick Change Blades for its ProSeries Openers. This helps farmers save time and money by reducing the amount of work required to change the blades on no-till air seeding tools.

Making use of Quick Change Blades greatly decreases dealer maintenance costs and the amount of time a client spends under the drill performing routine maintenance tasks.

The John Deere W200 Series Self-Propelled Windrowers is also a recipient of the award. They have TouchSet in-cab push-button controls which allow users to adjust the  swath flap from the cab. With each pass through the field, this innovation allows them to increase their windrowing efficiency.

Last August, John Deere unveiled the new CS770 Cotton Striper and CP770 Cotton Picker. Each equipment offers unrivaled levels of production, efficiency and technology for cotton cultivators.

The CPP770 Cotton Picker is capable of harvesting more than ten acres per hour while minimizing cotton losses. With this cotton picker, dryland cotton can be harvested at a rate of a hundred acres per day. 

“Both machines have a new cotton handling mechanism that saves up to eight percent on wrap and transportation expenses on the picker and twelve percent on the stripper,” Dawson said.
