St Joseph, Mich--The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers has announced the winners of the 2023 AE50 awards.

ASABE's AE50 awards honor innovation in product development for agricultural, food, and biological systems. This year, 26 different companies received awards, some earning recognition for multiple products. 

The top ten winners, as determined by the blue-ribbon panel of international experts judging the entries, are now eligible for the prestigious Davidson Prize, presented jointly with the Association of Equipment Manufacturers.

"The AE50 winners are always impressive and this year’s group does not disappoint," says ASABE Executive Director Darrin Drollinger. "I was especially struck by the diversity in technology and innovations that included an exciting mix of equipment, hardware, software and breakthrough applications."
