Europe is Crazy for Combines

Laura McNamara

John Deere Display at Agritechnica 2007John Deere offers five times as many combines in Europe as it does in North America. Paul Leathem, the manager of John Deere Advertising in Africa, Europe and the Middle East, says combines are a popular product in Europe with John Deere offering 5 different lines of combines, with a total of 27 different models. John Deere’s newest series, the T Series, includes an extra threshing drum, with four drums instead of three.

Paul says unlike North America, where combines are designed more for low-input farming, Europe demands combines designed specifically for high-input farming. You can listen to Paul speak about combines here:
