Mitas is planning to test the first agriculture tyre made from agricultural cultivated crops. Rubber extracted from the Taraxacum koksaghyz (Kazakh dandelion) will complement rubber tree latex in the compound of agriculture tyres produced by Mitas. The goal is to have the first prototype of the dandelion tyre during 2015. Mitas is also currently involved in the Drive4EU project researching the possibilities of using rubber from the Kazakh dandelion.
