A sustainable vision for the future of farming was unveiled today at the Farm Progress Show in Decatur, Illinois, USA. It came proposed in the form of a methane powered concept tractor from New Holland Agriculture, a global agricultural equipment brand of CNH Industrial. It was presented to the show’s audience and online viewers around the world in a live broadcast from the New Holland stand.
 
Developed by the New Holland design and engineering teams, this concept is a clear departure from anything seen to date in the industry. It combines alternative fuels and advanced agricultural technology with readily available powertrain innovation from CNH Industrial sister brand FPT Industrial. The concept’s powertrain develops the same power and torque as its standard diesel counterpart, meaning identical infield performance.
 
So armed, a farm has the ability to become completely energy independent, satisfying all of its own fuel and energy requirements, as well as those of the local community by using waste products in a ‘closed-loop’ virtuous cycle. It is the next step in realizing the farm of the near future, one that moves away from fossil fuel powered vehicles and embraces renewable sources.
 
CNH Industrial’s brands are forerunners and market leaders in the development and commercializing of natural gas-powered vehicles. Biomethane represents the latest phase in the Company’s alternative fuels strategy. It particularly suits on-farm use by agricultural vehicles as farmers already possess the raw materials and the space to produce the gas. This enables agribusinesses not only to be fuel sufficient, but also energy sufficient.
