As we move forward into the future of farming methods we are learning that they need to match our needs.
As the population grows, our need for fresh produce also grows. This means that there will need to be a drastic change in the future of sustainable farming and the logistics that go along with it. We have seen concepts of what futuristic farming and agriculture methods may look like in years to come, but what about on a smaller crop to crop scale using a robotic tractor? The Valtra Vertical Farming Tractor intends to keep logistics in mind while using new vertical modern methods and practices for harvesting. This incredible futuristic tractor may not look like much but hidden inside are all the characteristics we need. Included is a drone logistics system and belt driven hydroponic system! The belt within the system is driven at one end via the tractor to speed up the harvest. Ultimately, this futuristic farming tractor maximizes efficiency throughout the whole process with no stopping.
This farming tractor is a part of a full eco system and it allows crops to grow using the hydroponics system with many benefits.
The drone logistics system smoothly picks up and relocates the harvested crops to keep the process at a good pace. This way they are out of the way and then are sent to get ready for shipment, while other crops are still getting tended to. This leaves nothing unattended to for too long, which is an important characteristic. A fantastic error-free logistics method when it comes to farming, that way the tractor never stops tending to your crops. Let’s be honest, if this is what the future of farming looks like, we are behind it 100%! Time to change the definition of farming and agriculture.
