As the planet speeds towards a projected global population of 9 billion people by 2050, the importance of farm equipment technology follows suit. In order to feed a growing world, the agriculture sector needs to focus on reducing crop inputs and increasing yields. The agricultural equipment sector comprises an array of advanced equipment used in various farming applications. These include sprayers, tractors, seeders, harvesting equipment (primarily combines) as well as hay and forage equipment. The widespread adoption of precision farming techniques and modern business practices drives the purchase of newer, more efficient equipment across our territories. Key end-markets in western Canada for agricultural equipment include crop and livestock production as well as construction operations that use high-horsepower tractors.
