Edison Awards 2021
At the 2021 edition of the Edison Awards, New Holland Agriculture was awarded the gold medal for its ground-breaking loop master knotting technology featured on its big baler 1290 high density and big baler pus range. Named after and inspired by Thomas Alva Edison, the annual Edison Awards recognise excellence in new product and service development, marketing, human-centred design and innovation. The innovative knotting system uses a new type of secure double knot, which is stronger and has numerous advantages. The loop knotting process eliminates twine off-cuts from being discarded in the field resulting in cost and environmental benefits.
