New Holland CR 8.90 Combine with The Kernel Graphics - Fall Farm Show 2018
The Kernel is a perky kernel of corn created in the 1970s to tell the inside story of the world's first Twin Rotor combine, the TR70 from Sperry New Holland. The inspiration for the illustration of The Kernel with the dashing white moustache was another famous "Colonel" - Colonel Harland Sanders of Kentucky Fried Chicken fame.
The Kernel appeared in Sperry New Holland ads in various farm publications and was featured in product brochures, posters, and on merchandise. The Kernel even starred in an award winning animated film, "Twin Rotor Combine Concept".
