The donation of a state-of-the-art tractor from John Deere, adds value to the research of ag engineers at Iowa State University (ISU). The unit is valued at about $200,000.



2009 marks the fourth donation from the company, which agreed in 2005 to give a new tractor to ISU and replace it with the latest model every year. The Deere 8245R came off the assembly line the week before delivery. The row crop tractor features a 9-liter engine that meets Tier III emission standards and has an Infinitely Variable Transmission and GPS system.  The tractor also features a heated leather seat that automatically levels as the tractor goes over bumps in terrain.
