It was another award-winning year for AGCO Corp. In 2018 the company captured two honors from CropLife IRON® readers — the 2018 ShowStopper Award at the Midwest AG Industries Exposition (MAGIE) show and the 2018 CropLife IRON Product of the Year. Both of those trophies recognized the company’s TerraGator C Series.

At the end of 2019, AGCO managed to add another trophy to the mix — the 2019 Product of the Year Award from CropLife® magazine readers for the company’s AirMax Precision R1/R2 Application System for the RoGator.

“We are very excited to win this award this year,” David Webster, Director of Application Equipment Marketing, said upon accepting the trophy in December at the 2019 Agricultural Retailers Association meeting in New Orleans, LA. “It’s been a great product for us and our dealers.”

Plenty of Features

According to Webster, the AirMax Precision R1/R2 system allows low- or high-rate application to be performed. It also provides turn compensation in curves and corners and is available as a single-bin R1 or the two-bin R2 with configurable 50/50 or 60/40 split.

“The newly designed RoGator AirMax Precision R1/R2 pneumatic fertilizer spreaders are ideal for 4R practices,” Webster said. “They can also be used for mid-season prescription application of multiple crop nutrients.”

AGCO expects to expand upon the market rollout of the AirMax Precision R1/R2 Application System for RoGators throughout the 2020 growing season. “Thank you to CropLife IRON and all of its readers for the recognition.”
