Farming with Future in Mind

Agriculture: it’s fundamental. By reliably supplying a growing population with food, agriculture secures a large part of our prosperity. That goes hand in hand with a special responsibility to take care of nature and the environment. CLAAS accepts this responsibility for more sustainable, more efficient and more resilient agriculture. In the categories of #AgriTech, #AgriChallenges and #AgriCulture, we focus firmly on change, be it technological, cultural or social.

Our #HashTags

#AgriTech

It’s hard to imagine agriculture these days without the help of state-of-the-art technologies. How can technical and scientific innovations increase returns and protect the environment at the same time? Here are some of the most exciting innovations from the world of agricultural technology.

#AgriChallenges

Agriculture is directly affected by the effects of climate change: how can farmers adapt to their new weather patterns? Or to delayed growing periods or new pests? If the old rules of farming no longer apply, fresh solutions need to be found.

#AgriCulture

Every agricultural business is different, every farm must constantly adapt to new circumstances. Who are the new generation of farmers who need to transfer traditional agricultural practices into the digital world? Find out about some of them and their diverse stories here.

Targeting greater climate neutrality with HVO

Internal combustion engines are often at the heart of debates surrounding climate change and sustainability. “It’s not the engine that’s the problem, it’s the diesel that it runs on,” explains Patrick Ahlbrand, product strategist at CLAAS.Internal combustion engines are often at the heart of debates surrounding climate change and sustainability. “It’s not the engine that’s the problem, it’s the diesel that it runs on,” explains Patrick Ahlbrand, product strategist at CLAAS.

7 facts you need to know about the diesel alternative, HVO

While electric cars are taking over the streets, corn choppers, combine harvesters and large tractors will still need internal combustion engines in the future. However, they will no longer run on diesel, but instead will use HVO, a sustainable fuel. Hydrotreated vegetable oil, or HVO, has the same properties as diesel, giving it one clear advantage: it can be used pure – known as HVO100 – or mixed with fossil diesel. It reduces the machinery’s carbon footprint by up to 90 per cent in comparison with fossil diesel. Read on for seven facts about the three letters you won’t forget.
