New and innovative agricultural machinery that aims to save time and be more environmentally friendly has been put into the spotlight at this year's field days.
Whether it saves time for farmers, reduces fuel usage or puts the welfare of animals first; two products stand out.
FarmBot monitoring systems have been available to farmers for about five years and since then, over 2000 have been installed in farms across the country.
Mike Atkins, general manager for FarmBot, said the company focuses on the welfare of animals.
"We're helping people to know what is going on with their water storage on properties," Mr Atkins said.
"These are event-driven monitors and can be put on ... any storage of water and then they give you an alert when it's full, empty, when there's a leak or a fault.
"The monitor will notify you straight away and will connect through your cell network ... or satellite signal ... via SMS, email or an alert on your dashboard."
Mr Atkins said these monitors save time and money for farmers.
"It saves material costs in labour and fuel, because you're not driving to check your water anymore ... unless it is to take action," he said.
"It's also a huge peace of mind proposition; farmers are always aware that their stock has water, which prevents stock stress and a situation where animals might perish because they have run out of water.
"Always making sure animals have water is critical in everything that we do."
The monitors are also saving the earth's resource: water, as the systems are centred around the efficiency of water.
Another product in the spotlight for its efficiency was the new hybrid harvester by CLAAS, which made its debut at the Field Days.
The Lexion 8000 series aims to be more productive and fuel efficient.
National product manager Steve Reeves said the use of fossil fuels and diesel in agricultural machinery was topical.
"We're not as critical for horsepower as some other machines, so we can actually produce capacity at a lower fuel use," Mr Reeves said.
"The technology on this allows the engine to actually save fuel by a number of different ways ... when conditions are easy, it'll change the power level of the engine.
"If it's very hot, we can speed the fan up so the machine stays cool and then at night the fan will slow down and that will save close to 10 per cent of the fuel usage."
Mr Reeves said this machine has a range of features that reduce the amount of fuel the machine burns.
He said this means more customer efficiency and also helps in a climate change market too.
