THE 2018 COMPETITION IS CLOSED.
THANK YOU FOR PARTICIPATING.
Today’s farming machinery is becoming highly specialised; it used to be that a single tractor could take of everything from soil cultivation to crop harvesting. What if you could take the technology of the future, start from the beginning again, and invent a truly multipurpose machine? What kind of possibilities would it offer?
How do you think this ideal machine would handle today’s work and the needs of the future? Why would it be more efficient than today´s more specific machines? How would it handle soil cultivation, seeding, spraying and harvesting, or will these phases even be needed in the future? How could it be designed for use all year round rather than for just a few weeks per year?
In the future, it looks like easier tasks will be automated, although there will still be tasks which need the invaluable experience of a human operator. How do you envision the multipurpose machine of the future supporting these two seemingly contradictory things? How will people use driverless technology? Looking at the bigger picture, how do you think digitalization will help us and how will it make farmers´ lives easier in the future? Show us your vision of how the Valtra MultiPurpose Vehicle will change the way we see tractors in 2030!
