“AGCO will have equipment on display that can help everyone from commercial applicators and row crop farmers to people with small acreages, tackle challenges and solve problems in their business or on their land. And, visitors will get a better idea of how our products can be used to meet their needs, because this year we have a unique exhibit that displays the equipment in a fun, interactive way they probably haven’t seen before at a farm show. The AGCO lot itself is something to see,” says Ash Alt, regional manager for AGCO. Alt also points out, commercial applicators and row crop growers who are concerned about properly applying herbicides to control resistant weeds will want to learn more about the new technology-loaded, user-friendly RoGator C Series applicator while at the show.
AGCO’s primary exhibit is Lot # D-4-143. AGCO equipment experts will be available at the lot and in the demo fields to answer questions about the full line of equipment and this year’s featured products and activities.
