A rate control system for spreaders is being recognized as one of the year’s most innovative designs in engineering products or systems for the food and agriculture industries. Digi-Star says its NT8000i Nutrient Tracker Rate Control System earned an American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) AE50 award, an honor to be handed out during ASABE’s annual meeting in Louisville, Ky. in February.
Chris Horton, Digi-Star product development manager, said, “The NT8000i provides the precision control and automated traceability that the spreading industry demands.”
Digi-Star’s general manager Kevin Klubertanz said, “It has been a tremendous joint effort between our North American and United Kingdom development teams to introduce the NT8000i, and we are very excited about its far reaching potential.”
The annual AE50 competition honors up to 50 of the best products chosen by a panel of international engineering experts.
