The world's biggest show for agricultural machinery and equipment, Agritechnica 2013, has been taking place in Hanover in Germany during the past week. As usual, there was no shortage of genuinely new innovations, with machinery makers the world over striving to impress the thousands of farmers and contractors who poured through the halls each day.

One of the highlights of this mammoth show is the Innovations competition.

Working on the basis of strict criteria, a neutral panel of experts assigned by the DLG (the German Agricultural Society) select machines deserving of a coveted gold or silver medal from among the thousands of submissions.

So high is the standard that this year just four gold medals were awarded, despite the huge level of submissions.

We go into some detail on the four gold medal winners below.
