Benefits of AEF membership

Every year tens of thousands of new tractors are being purchased with standardized ISOBUS terminals. A main factor behind these purchases is the customer’s expectation that more and more implements can be controlled by these modern tractors. They are – as always – looking for ease of handling, reduced costs and long-term viability. Membership in the AEF helps you to make your products fit for the future. But you are obliged to participate actively and you can then take advantage of a number of benefits.
