Visitors to the Valtra stand at Agritechnica last November had the chance to use their creativity and support farming in Africa at the same time.
The centrepiece of the stand was the new N113 HiTech tractor, which visitors could customise to their liking by adding their fingerprints and signatures in paint. Almost 6500 people took the opportunity to leave their mark.
The customised “fingerprint”-tractor will be sold on Thursday May 24 by Ritchie Bros. at their auction site in Meppen, Germany. To participate you can either bid live at the auction or online. For more information visit the auction website www.rbauction.com
Proceeds to Weiveld Agriculture School in South Africa
With the proceeds Valtra will donate a new A93 HiTech tractor, custom-built to the needs of the school, technical training as well as other materials and tools.
The school offers studies in agriculture, technology, hotel and restaurant management, and data processing to approximately 600 students.
Co-operation between the local Valtra importer and the school will also continue after the donation.
It’s the 2 year anniversary of the AGCO blog, and we feel it’s important to take a moment to look back at where we were in the beginning and where we are today. The goals of the AGCO blog are to provide fresh, relevant information to our customers, dealers, partners and fellow agvocates about our brands and AGCO as a company. Being a global organization it can be a challenge to produce content that is useful to our broad base of readers, but today we are proud to share that since inception, we’ve had visitors from 182 countries around the world.
In April 2010 the AGCO blog was 2-bloggers-strong. Today, we have 28 contributors from all walks of the company, including every major brand and region. Our topics range from farm safety, agriculture industry news and employee spotlights to information about new product launches, our valued dealers and customer stories. Our original single blog stream has grown to 8, all of which can be subscribed to via various RSS/readers and email.

Valtra overalls received the highest score in the Farmer´s Guardian workwear test in February 2012.
The British magazine tested overalls by all major tractor manufacturers including Claas, Massey Ferguson, John Deere, Fendt, Case and New Holland.
The judges’ verdict for Valtra work overalls was “nearly perfect”. They praised the general fit as feeling “like a second skin”. Also the style, quality of the finish and the high visibility flashes scored high points.
The quality of the material was considered light and at the same time very durable. Also the amount of pockets and easy fastenings were noted as excellent features of Valtra overalls.
Materials, amount of pockets, style – what features do you appreciate most in your work wear?
30 years ago Volvo BM and Valmet presented the Nordic tractor Volvo BM Valmet, a forerunner of today’s Valtra tractors. As the only Nordic tractor manufacturer Valtra and the Nordic magazines Bedre Gardsdrift, Maskinbladet, Jordbruksaktuellt and Koneviesti invite you to a special design challenge.
Are there minor or major details that you would like to improve in your tractor? Do you have ideas for new functions, features, materials or design? We are interested in your practical ideas for the next generations Valtra N and T Series tractors. The suggestions must be based on technology that already exists or will be available in the near future.
A jury consisting of Valtra engineers and editors of the four magazines will evaluate all ideas. All good suggestions will be awarded Valtra Collection prices. Valtra designers and engineers will also use the best ideas to draw a concept tractor. The concept tractor will be presented in November.
To participate simply submit your ideas to the participating magazines either as a drawing, text, model or any way you want by post or e-mail. For more information visit the magazine websites.
Meet Valtra engineers in Finland
The designers of the two best submissions from each country will be invited to the Valtra factory to meet engineers, designers and product specialists. There they will also have a chance to attend a customer panel and thus take part in developing Valtra´s own future tractors.
The design challenge is open for all, but only individuals with residence in Norway, Sweden, Denmark or Finland are entitled for the factory visit. Your idea must be sent to the one of the magazines before April 30th. Valtra retains the right to use all ideas without further compensation.
