Overview
The Demeter project is developing a next-generation self-propelled hay harvester for agricultural operations. The current project goal is to provide a "Program-Execute" such that an expert harvester operator merely has to harvest a field once ("programming the field") allowing a lesser-skilled operator play back the programmed field ("executing the field") at a later date. This technology has been verified on a New Holland 2550 hay harvester. The project is now entering the commercialization phase in which this technology will soon be commercially available on the HW340 hay harvester. Eventually this technology will be used by all of Case New Holland's product line.
