Vertical farming will likely continue to expand alongside the population in urban areas, so the conceptual Valtra Vertical Farming Tractor has been designed as a vehicle to help with harvesting, transportation and more.

The vehicle features a harvesting unit that will quickly and efficiently remove the crops from the hydroponic system before getting them ready for shipment. This brings a new level of efficiency to food production that could make the process far simpler as we move into the future with an increased population and space constraints in urban areas.

The conceptual Valtra Vertical Farming Tractor is the design work of Jack Donald Morris, Alireza Saeeidi and Benjamin Miller, and also features a drone logistics system to expedite the operation of the facility.
