BKT, the main sponsor of the Tractor of the Year (TOTY) 2021, has revealed this year’s award winners.
The Tractor of the Year 2021 is the Massey Ferguson 8 S.265, while the Valta G 135 wins Best Utility, the Fendt 211 V Vario is Best of Specialised and the Claas Axion 960 Cemos is awarded Sustainable TOTY.
Lucia Salmaso, CEO BKT Europe, said during a virtual presentation of the awards: “I think that TOTY is an event which has become a tradition, but at the same time is evolving and showing us the future developments in the agricultural sector. TOTY highlights the best ideas from the best tractor manufacturers.
“TOTY is synonymous with innovation. It looks to the future and sets trends. BKT is proud to sponsor and take part in such an extraordinary event, which is the only one of its kind.
“May I offer my personal congratulations to the winners of the four categories. I am absolutely taken back by the research, by the incredible solutions developed in terms of technology, all focused on environmental and economic sustainability. Projects and ideas which almost seem to be science fiction. And yet they are not, as we are all aware.
“In recent months we have seen intense research by manufacturers and this has been a powerful stimulus also for those who, like us, make tyres.
In its first year as main sponsor, BKT has contributed to the success of the initiative by focusing on people’s involvement through numerous online events.
BKT says Covid-19 has challenged all to think creatively and so numerous projects have come into being, such as training and virtual events and even a new TV channel, the BKT Network where over recent months, the company has broadcast a number of programs on key themes, such as agriculture, as well as involving the public in other news from the BKT world of tyres.
