The key manufacturers based on segmental revenue and overall product portfolio are Deere & Company (U.S.), CNH Industrial N.V.

These models feature a flat working angle of 17° and a new bonnet design which has streamlined sides, new folding mechanism, and linear and conical picking rollers.

Deere & Company (U.S.) has adopted new product development as the primary strategy to retain its position in the agricultural equipment market. For instance, in February 2016, it introduced a new 5R series of tractors. These tractors have 60˚ steering angle, two fully electronic transmission options, and improved forward visibility by 7% and upward visibility by 80% with the help of panorama cab roof, six halogen work lights, and an interactive display panel. It also introduced a new model to its air-seeding family, namely, C850 air cart for small grain producers. This model has a carrying capacity of 850 bushels, around 55% higher than the previous models.

As a part of this joint venture, Deere & Company acquired the majority ownership of Hagie Manufacturing with the sales and service of Hagie equipment integrated with Deere's in a span of 15 months.

The acquisition helped to extend the product portfolio of New Holland Agriculture brand. Further, in December 2016, the company invested USD 685.0 thousand in its Zedelgem plant for upgrading the EC process. This upgradation improved the corrosion resistance of components of combine harvesters, balers, and chippers, which are manufactured at this plant. In August 2016, the company had held a public preview of its concept autonomous tractors at Farm Progress Show in Iowa, U.S. This included a cabless concept Case IH Magnum and a New Holland T8 NH concept tractor, which includes a cab for operational flexibility. Hence, it followed an appropriate mix of strategies to retain its position in the market.
