The beefed up, all new Farms and Farm Machinery magazine brings in the New Year with more reviews including an eight model ute shootout and interesting features such as one of a self-driving planting machine.

This issue marks a brand new era for Farms and Farm Machinery magazine, as it features not just a comprehensive farm machinery marketplace for those looking to buy or sell, but also a sized up editorial section with the latest product news, comprehensive reviews and exciting features with a focus on agricultural machinery.

In this issue, we start by looking at an awesome, locally built autonomous agricultural prototype system that could be working in fields soon.

Carene Chong and Tom Dickson travel to NSW where a team of researchers led by Associate Professor Jay Katupitiya at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) is determined to show Australia and the world autonomous farm machinery need not be just a figment of the imagination. 

In fact, having one of these self-driving machines working on your farm is a whole lot closer than you think. Watch the exciting video.

We also have an exciting Agritechnica 2015 special in which we looked at the latest and greatest farm machinery on display at the world’s largest agricultural machinery trade fair, and what we can expect to see on our shores soon.

Matt Wood assembles eight of the country’s best dual cab 4x4 utes for three days of good old fashioned mud bashing, off-roading and circle work.

The group consist of the Ford Ranger, Nissan Navara NP300, new Toyota Hilux, Mazda BT-50, Holden Colorado, Volkswagen Amarok, Mitsubishi Triton and Isuzu D-Max. Watch the video.

In this issue, we also looked at:

Last but not least, Tom Dickson has the privilege of speaking with the inspiring quadriplegic cattle farmer Rob Cook, who, with the help of wife Sarah, has built a thriving Brangus beef business using clever technology that ensures he keeps contributing to the operation.
