Below are some of the features you can expect when you visit the Farm Progress Show.

Stay tuned for the full details for the 2021 event to be held in Decatur, Illinois.

Ride 'n' Drive

You’ve heard the specs and seen the pictures. It’s time to put you in the driver’s seat to experience the power and performance of the latest machinery from some of the best in agriculture. We are excited to offer test drives from a number of companies.

Field Demonstrations

Experience the latest, most technologically advanced farm equipment in the world in action. Across 300+ acres, compare combine performance and other equipment as the machines do what they do best. 

Autonomous Showcase at the Farm Progress Show

Witness a range of autonomous technology in action. The Autonomy Showcase provides a "hands off" demonstration experience that goes beyond auto-steering.  

Products and Technology

The SmartAg Autonomous Grain Cart System

The tractor-grain cart combo can be called to a nearly full combine and follow along for on-the-go unloading. The system syncs with the combine and stays on track even if the combine speed changes – all without a driver in the tractor. The showcase offers more details on how this system works in-field.  

The DOT Technology Autonomous System

Appearing for the first time at a U.S. farm show, this full-size autonomous tractor works with custom-designed implements that link up with the power unit to get work done. This demonstration offers an up-close look at how this fully autonomous system works. DOT offers tillage, spraying and application tools for the DOT power unit, with a planter under development. Both technologies are a part of Raven Autonomy™.
