The level of on-board technology, spacious cab and in-field performance are all factors that are said to have played a major part in John Deere being selected for the overall Tractor of the Year (TOTY) 2022 award.

The award ceremony took place at EIMA show in Bologna, Italy, earlier this week (19 to 23 October).

The exact model to claim the main title was the 350hp (388hp with boost) 7R 350 AutoPowr. It succeeds the Massey Ferguson 8S.265, which was crowned as winner last year.
