Farm Equipment's editorial team made the trip to Louisville, Ky., for this year's National Farm Machinery Show. The Kentucky Expo Center was packed with the latest cutting edge technology and product innovations.

1. Kinze 5000 Series Planters

Before the show opened, we got a sneak peek of Kinze's new 500 Series row unit. The new planters will replace Kinze's current 4905 and 4705 models with the same configurations. The 5900 will be available in 24-row, 30-inch; 16-row, 30-inch; and 12-row, 30-inch configurations. The 5700 will be offered in 36-row, 20-inch and 24-row, 30-inch versions, as well as a 24-row, 20-inch narrow row planter. 

2.Trimble Advanced Path Planning Technology

Trimble launched its new advanced path planning technology at the National Farm Machinery Show. The software-based technology will be a game changer for growers and equipment manufacturers, says sales director Jesse Chisholm.

3. TYM T130

Following the merger of Branson Tractors and TYM North America, under the TYM brand, TYM now offers 64 different models. This includes the new T115 that will take the place of the T110 with a new design, upgraded cab, and LED package. Also seen at National Farm Machinery Show is the all-new T130 (below) with the highest horsepower offered in the expanded TYM tractor line-up. With construction of a new 150,000 sq ft facility, TYM's HQ will be located in Rome, Ga.

4. Kwik-Kover Cover Crop Seeder

During the Farm Progress Show last fall, we heard buzz about a new cover crop seeder being developed by Norwood Sales. We swung by the Horace, N.D. based company's booth for an update, and the new seeder was on display. It's called the Kwik-Kover cover crop seeder. Casey Bryll, VP of business development, gives us the scoop in the video below. 

5. Orthman's Updated 1tRIPr Strip-Till Machine

Orthman Manufacturing, based in Lexington, Neb., made its first big appearance as part of the Unverferth team at the show. Justin Trout, director of sales, has been with Orthman for 20 years, and he tells us they'll be able to penetrate new markets after joining forces with Unverferth. Trout gives us a look at the newest version of the company's 1tRIPr strip-till machine in the video below.
