Fall has officially arrived. Growers are in the midst of harvesting their crops, fall fertilizer applications are taking place and seed options for 2013 are being considered.
And here at CropLife, we are officially taking votes for this year’s Product of the Year competition. Hosted by our sister magazine, CropLife IRON, the Product of the Year honors that one new product from the year’s summer show season that absolutely wowed the ag retailers that saw it for themselves. Past winners have included Hagie’s All-Wheel Steering, Miller-St. Nazianz’s HydraLink and Case IH’s Patriot 4430 sprayer.
In 2012, the five finalists for this honor are the M3-SA Tender from Adams Fertilizer Equipment, the Titan 30 Series floater from Case IH, the Aluminum Boom from Hagie Manufacturing, the NITRO 5000 Series sprayer from Miller-St. Nazianz and the UniPilot assisted steering system from TeeJet Technologies. All of these products received formal nominations from readers and web visitors during the months of July and August.
Now it’s up to you to determine the winner. From now until Friday, November 2, you can cast your vote for the best of these five products. At the time this enewsletter was being prepared, there were already close to 100 votes cast. The winner will be announced at one of this winter’s trade events.
So don’t delay. Please help us decide which brand/company deserves to be named the Product of the Year today.
