The Farm Progress Show is a great place to see the latest innovations in the agriculture industry. This year, Kinze featured an industry-changing planter prototype that garnered a lot of attention at the show. Kinze also launched new grain cart and planter features. 



A 60pivot fold split row prototype planter was on display. Kinze talked with farmers who visited the booth to gather their feedback. There are currently no plans to build this planter. The feedback gathered will be used in the future development process.

Kinze launched industry-leading Camso brand tracks on the new series 1105 and 1305 dual auger grain carts and made tracks available for the first time on the 1051 single auger grain cart.
