It’s hard to imagine a plough that does more than…well, plough. But Kverneland, a Norway-based agricultural machinery company, decided it was time to put some ‘intelligence’ in the system.

The company showcased its 2500 i-Plough at Agritechnica in Hanover, Germany, where RealAgriculture’s Shaun Haney stopped by the booth to find out more.

“It can handle all of the functions of the plow — all the adjustments — from the tractor seat, via your ISOBUS screen,” Kverneland’s Markus Brinkopp-Rode told Haney in an interview.

DLV media group has awarded the i-Plough “Machine of the Year” for 2016.
