Daedong Industrial Co. Limited is a manufacturing conglomerate based in Seoul, South Korea. They manufacture tractors, combine harvesters and other items under the Daedong brand. Daedong also exports tractors to various markets around the world under the Kioti brand, including North America. Some of their tractors also bear the brand names of Farm Tanakaya, Landix and Landpower as the primary name.

Daedong has had marketing agreements and/or licensing over the years from Ford/New Holland, John Deere and Kubota. They have built some tractors for Cub Cadet and have built the Bobcat tractors since 2007, (when fellow-Korean company Doosan Infracore bought the Bobcat company).[1]


Daedong was founded in 1947, and began building tractors in 1968 with technological assistance from Kubota and began receiving technological assistance from Ford in 1969.[2] Though some tractors share appearance with Kubota tractors, there are no ties between the two companies today.

Combine Harvester production began in 1982 with cooperation from Yanmar.

In 2006, Daedong produced 11,405 tractors, 1,974 combine harvesters, 5,792 power tillers and other agricultural equipment.[3]
