On March 22, Georgia’s agriculture community gathered to celebrate the Georgia Agriculture Awareness Day. During the day the largest tractors used in the state were on display at the state capitol. AGCO was especially proud to participate in this event, since Georgia is the home state of AGCO’s corporate headquarters. The Challenger MT955C, which was recently parked right in front of the headquarters building, was sent to represent AGCO during this celebration.
The Agriculture Awareness Day is part of the Eighth Annual Agricultural Week in Georgia.
