Monarch Tractor, maker of the Monarch Tractor MK-V, the world’s first fully electric, driver-optional, connected tractor, announces its upcoming exhibit at Agritechnica, the world’s leading trade fair for agricultural machinery. This signals the first-ever presence of the MK-V at a major agricultural trade show in the European market.
Monarch Tractor’s exhibit at Agritechnica will allow attendees from throughout Europe to have an up-close look at the technology reimagining farming in the United States and see the possibilities in Europe as Monarch Tractor enters the European ag market. Additionally, Monarch Tractor Co-founder, Mark Schwager, will be presenting Making Organic Farming Profitable by Electrifying and Automating the Tractor on The Systems & Components Expert Stage, and joining the industry’s most innovative visionaries on the Electrifying Agricultural Machines: The Quiet Revolution panel to provide insights on the slow but steady shift to electric solutions.
“We’ve seen first-hand the benefits that electrification has on farm and vineyard operations, and a huge part of our mission is to ensure these benefits support farmers and vineyard owners in their transitions to organic and regenerative practices,” said Mark Schwager, Co-founder of Monarch Tractor. “Entering into the European market, which has been openly committed to investing in and supporting the green revolution, allows us to play an integral role in making organic and sustainable practices even more profitable for farmers in the region, showing farmers globally what’s possible.”
The launch of the MK-V is kickstarting the energy and digital transformation of the agriculture industry in Europe. The MK-V looks and works like a traditional tractor but offers so much more; it is a farm energy platform with micro-grid capabilities and a cloud-controlled by-wire tractor management platform that is compatible with existing farm ecosystems and creates clear paybacks for farmers. The MK-V is combining electrification, machine learning, and data analysis to enhance farm operations by driving labor productivity, increased safety, and significant cost savings. Monarch estimates that existing customers can save up to 58% of fuel costs through employing an MK-V fleet, all while reducing about 54 metric tons of CO2e emissions for every MK-V utilized.
We’re already seeing interest on farms across Europe in integrating the MK-V into operations. There is a clear demand here for clean energy solutions and the MK-V is a catalyst for bringing that to life.
