Arable Innovation


Garford Farm Machinery – Robocrop Baby Leaf Salad Hoe


Designed to help growers combat restricted herbicide options, Garford’s Baby Salad Leaf Hoe is designed for delicate hoeing in narrow rows to below 50mm.

It uses inter-row technology and disc steering to ensure 5mm accuracy, using shares designed for minimal soil disturbance. A low camera position ensures precise weed control between the crop row.

Judges’ comments: An impressive development bringing together a range of engineering principles to produce a highly technical hoe suited to a critical market. The hoe addresses the need for reliable performance when dealing with very small leaf crops.

Livestock Innovation


JF Hudson – AktivPuls milking cluster and liner concept


AktivPuls’s new milking cluster concept uses a liner that creates a more natural milking experience using lower vacuum levels so teats close faster, reducing the risk of infection.

The liners feature seven zones to adapt to all sizes of teats and are said to last up to three times longer than conventional liners while speeding up milking times by 8%.

Judges’ comments: Potential improvements in animal health and productivity thanks to the increased milking throughput are key winning points.


Kuhn – Twin-reel film binding system


This binding system helps produce high silage quality and easy feed-out of bales.


EASYFIX Jupiter F cow mattress


The EASYFIX Jupiter F ensures optimum positioning of the cow when lying in the cubicle.


Huesker Agritec Silage Safe clamp covering system


This system is designed to provide an airtight seal for silage quickly and efficiently.

Driven Innovation


Apollo Vredestein – Traxion Optimall tyre


This new tyre is said to be able to be operated at up to 25% lower pressure than comparable VF (Very High Flexion) tyres in the market. It combines very high flexibility with exceptional stability.

A high-tech rubber compound in the shoulder area supports the carcass at low pressure for extreme deflection. The curved design contour ensures a larger footprint of up to 15%.

Judges’ comments: The tyre features new technology to achieve lower pressures and provides long-term benefits to both customers’ bottom line and soil health, due to lower compaction and improved fuel consumption.


Bombardier Recreational Products – Can-Am ATV ABS


Can-Am has installed ABS technology on its Outlander and Renegade models to improve safety.

Online Innovation


Sparex – Connix LED magnetic wireless lighting system


A multifunctional wireless trailer light solution, Connix functions as indicators, hazard lights, brake lights and vehicle registration highlight.

This effective trailer light update features a 10-hour battery life and four-hour recharging. The lights are placed on any vehicle around the farm, paired with the plug, and are ready for use.

Judges’ comments:  The innovation is well thought out, has identified a need within the industry, certainly fills a big safety requirement and has wider uses outside of agriculture.


Herdwatch – Farm Medicine Scanner


This scanner uses technology within smart phones to simplify the process of recording medicines.

Diversification Innovation


Herbst Machinery – Compac Screen


This three-way split screener consists of a screen box with a pan feeder, where material such as waste material, aggregate, concrete, soil and rubble can be separated into three different fractions, turning it into useful graded end products.

The screener has its own power unit and hydraulics, making it completely self-sufficient when operating on site. It can be towed by a tractor.

Judges’ comments: A brand new category this year, which must fire the imagination of entrepreneurial engineers and business people, producing a clear winner with the Herbst Compac Screen showing innovation and application at its best with a machine that can be used in many different circumstances.


Forest Master – Zero Hand Trucks zero pivot system


A range of sack trucks that allows the operator of the truck to lift and transport heavy loads. 


Howseman Agriculture – six-row drip-tape laying unit


This fully adjustable drip-tape irrigation laying unit has overcome the issue of tape depth control regardless of soil type.

Future Innovation


Martin Lishman – ImpacTrack data logger


ImpacTrack is a new, low-cost data logger that can be used with various synthetic food shapes that replicate the movement characteristics of fruit and vegetables prone to damage and bruising during handling and transport.

The Bluetooth transmitter allows real-time monitoring or recording of damage and temperature during handling by machines or humans from field to shop floor. The logger can be used independently to monitor impact shock and temperature during transit.

Judges’ comments: A truly innovative product with a real market need. Well thought out with potential benefits in terms of food waste and product quality. Innovative, with great commercial potential both inside and outside agriculture.
