Current and future trends in agriculture

Technology is constantly transforming the way that we work, and the agricultural sector is no exception!

Today, we explore the current and future trends in agriculture, with BKT’s Field Engineer Manager, Piero Torassa, and our Senior President & Director of Technology, Mr. Dilip Vaidya.

Sustainable development is undoubtedly one of the most pressing issues facing the industry at present. Balancing an increased global demand for food with an ability to scale crop yield, necessitates advances in farming machinery in order to increase productivity and output.

For the team at BKT, this means developing new tire features, such as increased flexion (IF Technology) and very high flexion (VF Technology) along with increased load capacity, to support such advances.

Did you know?
  • There are over 200 different patterns for agricultural tires!
  • Tire flotation refers to how much the tire floats above the ground or how much it digs into the ground.
  • Advances in both tractor and tire technology are imperative for increasing the yield of crops.
