South America – Ribeirão Preto City

Landed in São Paulo, breezed through customs and am dashing for a connection to Ribeirão Preto City, home to AGRISHOW 2010. Should make the flight, or else I won’t get to AGRISHOW 2010 until late afternoon.

While I am traveling today, you might want to take a look at AGCO do Brazil’s website, as they offer some different products than what is available in different regions of the world. Together the AGCO brands of Massey Ferguson and Valtra make up the dominant share of the farm equipment market.

One of the new products launched this year in South America was the Valtra A-Series tractors. They were created in response to the Brazillian government offering financial support for the development of low-horsepower tractors to improve the profitability for its country’s small farmers. Over 2,000 of the A750, A850 and A950’s were sold within the first two months alone.

Wish me luck… I’m off to catch my next flight! Don’t forget to send me your questions by commenting to this post.
