One silver medal was given for Swing Cut, which is a new feature on the firm's sprayer booms to reduce yaw movement while spraying, thus reducing over- or under-spraying of the crop.

A second silver medal was awarded for depth guidance on Lemken's semi-mounted tine cultivators.

This feature allows the machine to maintain its depth while working on uneven or hilly ground without any input from the operator in the tractor.

The plough maker also picked up a Machine of the Year award for its Turn Control Plus feature on the Lemken Juwel plough range, which allows all plough functions to be operated through an Isobus terminal.

Functions such as furrow width, leg angle, trip/autoreset pressure and swing over can all be controlled by the push of a button on the tractor Isobus terminal.
