Everybody has a part to play in making the world a better place to live. Making sustainable choices is vital, and different industries have a huge responsibility in leading the way. The best results can often be achieved by focusing on one's own expertise and understanding how the world can benefit from it. At Valtra, we know machines - versatile, reliable, and durable tractors that are built to last.
We also know our customers. They are at the heart of all Valtra's operations. Everything we do is to make their lives easier. Therefore, the purpose for Valtra's sustainability actions is to protect the livelihood of farmers, and as such, our business, employees, stakeholders and, of course, the land.
Read on to see how sustainability is at the root of everything we do at Valtra
We are committed to developing and improving the sustainability of all our operations, interactions, and relationships through three key focus areas.
To enjoy better yields the soil must be in prime condition. To comply with regulations carbon emissions need to be kept in check. The answer is a smart machine that helps you work sustainably every day. Optimal accuracy, precision and efficiency is ensured and complying with regulations becomes automatic. Smart Farming technologies will save you time, money and keep your land profitable, and the best thing is that you don't even have to think about it.
Smart Farming is the way to boost the health of your soil for better quality yields. Optimizing nutrient and pest control efficacy, managing compaction, and machine optimization are key opportunities where farmers can use the correct data to increase yield and improve the environment. Sequestering carbon into agricultural soils and boosting crop yields is a natural win-win for both farmer and environment.
Smart Farming uses advanced technology to increase productivity while reducing energy waste. Improving operational efficiencies reduces fuel consumption and lowers costs. To support this, we are continuously looking into and developing alternative fuel solutions. We both meet and exceed the local emission standards with our Stage V compliant AGCO Power engines.
Know the perfect timing for your tasks based on the weather history of your farm and optimize long-term yield by increasing cropping cycles and double cropping. Whatever the task, the right timing means the most profit.
Follow waylines precisely, be connected to what is happening on the ground and maximise the cultivated area. Whether you're planting, tilling, spraying or harvesting, you will save time, fuel and money.
Save resources and improve crop quality by applying just the right amount of fertiliser or spray to each part of the field, making adjustments on-the-go. Everything is recorded as you work, making complying with regulations a breeze.
Sustainability is all about choices. The choices we make every day. To comply with regulations, decrease inputs, and reduce fuel consumption while increasing yields you need to make smart choices. You know what to do. But how you do it? Well, it's your choice.
At Valtra, we believe actions speak louder than words. We are proud of our longstanding work and achievements in sustainability. From exciting co-operations with our partners to sustainably operated factories and unique products and services, with Valtra, you can rest assured that your machine is the most sustainable choice on the market.
