A Salute to the Winners

Resource is pleased to sponsor the AE50 awards program—celebrating companies for their developments in agricultural, food, and biological systems. The winners take center stage in this issue, which is dedicated to the gifted engineers and co-workers who creatively harness and manage company resources and talent to pursue exciting innovations.

AE50 is the only awards program of its kind. From the many entries submitted each year, an expert panel selects up to 50 products for recognition. The award-winning products are those ranked highest in innovation, significant engineering advancement, and impact on the market served. Formal presentation of the AE50 awards will occur at ASABE’s Agricultural Equipment Technology Conference (AETC) in Kansas City, Mo.

And beginning this year, ASABE is partnering with AEM’s AG CONNECT Expo and Summit to honor the “best of the best” from among the products selected for AE50 awards.The new Gold and Silver awards will be presented at the AG CONNECT Expo, co-located with the 2013 AETC, and will be highlighted in a special display throughout the event.

A panel of agricultural equipment editors from leading farm publications along with ASABE member engineers selected the Gold and Silver award winners from the previous two years of AE50 awards.The Gold and Silver awards will be presented every two years in conjunction with the biennial AG CONNECT Expo and Summit.

Congratulations from the Resource staff!
