Trelleborg Wheel Systems is a proud sponsor of Tractor of the Year Brazil — Trator Do Ano Brasil — now celebrating its eighth year.
José Carlos Oliveira, President of Trelleborg Wheel Systems South America, says: “The development of innovative and technological solutions that contribute to precision, revolution and sustainability in agriculture is part of Trelleborg’s DNA. We are therefore pleased to support initiatives like Tractor of the Year, which promotes innovation in Brazil’s agricultural market, making it stronger, more developed and increasingly competitive.”
The award highlights excellence in three categories: small tractors (up to 100 hp), medium tractors (100-200hp), and large tractors (over 200hp). From these three categories, a jury will also select the Great Tractor of the Year following a technical evaluation.
The best in the special tractor category—featuring models designed for specific purposes— will be awarded the Great Special Tractor of the Year and, new in 2021/2022, the brand that receives the most votes on www.tratordoano.com starting 17 May 2021, will take home the award for Most Voted Brand.
Julian Mendieta, President of Agriworld Magazine and organizer of the award, states: “The Tractor of the Year Brazil Organization is proud to bring together universities, tractor manufacturers and end customers. The award is much more than a title; it’s a catalyst for brands’ product development and a training opportunity for professionals currently working in the field as well as those in the future.”
First held in 2014, Tractor of the Year Brazil is held every two years, alternating with Machine of the Year Brazil, and are both sponsored by Trelleborg Wheel Systems in Brazil.
