A prototype combine with a space-age look has been showing up around the country, being field-tested by New Holland (or CNH, as the company is now known). Photos of the futuristic-looking combine have been showing up on the internet and a sharp-eyed reader suggested we take a look. We found photos at www.harvesting.com. They were taken by a farmer who said New Holland engineers field-tested the combine on his farm. We could find no further "official" information. However, a number of cyber-surfers reported that the new-look combine has been making appearances across North America and Europe.
