About Powering Agriculture

Powering Agriculture: An Energy Grand Challenge for Development supports the development and deployment of clean energy innovations that increase agriculture productivity and stimulate low carbon economic growth in the agriculture sector of developing countries to help end extreme poverty and extreme hunger.

Resource magazine and the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers have announced the winners of the 2019 AE50 awards.

The winning products, listed at asabe.org, represent the diversity of agricultural and biological engineering, as well as the variety of companies—of all sizes and specializations—that continue to bring advanced technology to the marketplace. Winners are now eligible for the prestigious Davidson Prize, presented jointly with the Association of Equipment Manufacturers.

"The ingenuity being brought to the marketplace is tremendous, and we're pleased to provide the spotlight it deserves," says Joe Walker, Resource publisher. "The winners showcase solutions that improve efficiency, reduce waste, promote safety, and advance the quality of life."

AE50 winners will be profiled in the January/February issue of Resource, and the awards will be presented formally on Tuesday, February 12, at the 2019 Agricultural Equipment Technology Conference, in Louisville, Kentucky.

AE50 awards have been encouraging and applauding engineering achievements since the program was established in 1984. It is the only awards program of its kind. Entries are evaluated by a blue-ribbon, international panel of industry experts in technology, design, and product development. Contact Sandy Rutter at ASABE for information about the nomination process.
