Fixed High Ground Clearance Tractor 2024-26-0063

Row-crop intercultural activities are widely affected by unavailability of manpower & seasonal nature. Current tractors with lower ground clearance are unable to access field after certain crop stage, may damage crop after certain growth. Some limited mechanization options available (self-propelled boom sprayer) are of higher cost. Crop care activities are intensive and observed consistent increase in cost. To address these challenges and unlock significant business benefits, a novel retro-fit height attachment for tractors has been developed. This attachment empowers tractors to access row-crop fields with crops standing at a height of up to 3 feet, effectively eliminating ground clearance constraints. The benefits of this innovative solution include enhanced accessibility, cost-effective mechanization, heightened operational efficiency, crop preservation, and improved sustainability.
