AGCO Corporation will exhibit equipment from across its brand lines, including a special celebration of Massey Ferguson’s 175th anniversary with a unique showcase of tractors from across the brand’s storied history at the Farm Progress Show (FPS) in Boone, Iowa, USA on August 30 – September 1.
2022 is Massey Ferguson’s 175th anniversary and the brand will celebrate this milestone achievement with a special vintage showcase featuring museum-quality tractors from across the area. Balancing the impressive heritage display will be many of today’s Massey Ferguson machines and implements, including a full display of the brand’s new S Series tractors, a first-time opportunity for FPS attendees. The tractor lineup includes the 8S, 7S, 6S, and 5S series and MF combines.
“We’re excited to celebrate Massey Ferguson’s 175 years with the farmers – as well as many of the tractors – that made them possible,” said Darren Parker, vice president of Massey Ferguson, North America. “This heritage display alongside our newest solutions shows Massey Ferguson’s constant evolution over the decades.”

Precision Ag Solutions from Fuse
Precision ag drives efficiencies across entire farming operations and AGCO’s Fuse technology will be on display throughout the booth and in the Fuse tent, which will be available between the Fendt and Massey Ferguson exhibits.

Fuse’s precision ag experts will be on hand to help farmers manage their data across brands and accomplish more with less – a critical advantage to mixed-fleet operations as input costs increase.
