The Fendt 900 Vario was very well received by the general public, claiming the Audience Choice Award. Most of the 30,000 or so participants voted online for the Fendt 900 Vario. "The Audience Choice Award is particularly important to me, because farmers vote for us and rate our performance as a whole, not just for one machine. That's why the Audience Choice Award is more valuable to me than a Gold medal," said Peter-Josef Paffen, Chairman of the AGCO/Fendt Management Board, after the award ceremony.
A total of 53 machines from 36 manufacturers were nominated for the title of "Machine of the Year 2020" across 16 categories. 20 specialist editors from 11 countries awarded the prizes in the 15 different machine categories.
