St. Joseph, Michigan. – The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) has named the DICKEY-john IntelliAg® ISO6™ winner of a 2016 AE50 award.

AE50 awards honor the year’s most innovative designs in engineering products or systems for the food and agriculture industries. The ISO6TM was featured in the January/February 2016 special AE50 issue of ASABE’s magazine Resource: Engineering & Technology for a Sustainable World.

The IntelliAg ISO6 is a six-channel, ISOBUS-compatible control and monitor system that allows planters and seeders to apply multiple materials from one module. The ISO6 feature set is highly customizable providing solutions on an as-requested basis in order to produce differing levels of functionality that can quickly expand to meet the ever-changing needs of precision agriculture. Integrated hardware reducing features include: advanced seed monitoring, section control with virtual switches, and implement fold control.

“DICKEY-john is pleased and honored to receive the AE50 award for our continued commitment to ISO-implement controls that began more than a decade ago. The evolution of precision agriculture requires constant innovation and DICKEY-john remains committed to solving complex problems and providing simplistic, reliable, and flexible solutions,” states Nolan Bangert, DICKEY-john Product Manager.

Companies from around the world submit entries to the annual AE50 competition and up to 50 of the best products are chosen by a panel of international engineering experts. The judges select products that will best advance engineering for the food and agriculture industries.

The AE50 awards program is sponsored by Resource to emphasize the role of new products and systems in bringing advanced technology to the marketplace. These engineering developments help farmers, food processors and equipment manufacturers cut costs, enhance quality and increase profits.
