Future farm concept

The future farm solves many challenges facing us today. The world’s population in 2050 has reached 9 billion. Urbanization and continuing industrialization continue to reduce arable farm land. The future farm is a self-sufficient and sustainable part of its environment. It is an important provider of food, energy, raw materials and services in its region.

Energy required for living and farming is gained from biomatter, wind and solar power. Thanks to advanced communication technology the future farmer has constant access to information about all aspects of farm work, such as soil information, crop growth, animal welfare and the maintenance level of the farm machinery. This information allows many farm processes to be automated. It also means that work can be performed both day and night, further increasing farm efficiency.

ANTS is the perfect machine for the future farm. In true Valtra tradition it offers a high level of modularity and sophistication, allowing the farmer to handle jobs beyond traditional tractor usage.
