Result of agronomic tests carried out with low-pressure VT-TRACTOR tyres

Video of the result of agronomic tests carried out with low-pressure VT-TRACTOR tyres

The tests carried out over a full year show the benefits of low pressure in improving the efficiency of work in the fields.

Advantages in terms of Fuel Consumption:

  • The VF tyre design optimises transmission of power to the ground, minimising the loss of energy.
  • A better soil footprint reduces rolling resistance, especially on wet ground.
  • Efficient use of VF tyres at low pressure leads to significant fuel savings.

Advantages for Traction:

  • The better soil footprint for low-pressure VF tyres reduces slip, making the work rate better.
  • The specific design of the lugs facilitates traction and avoids earth accumulating between the lugs.

Advantages for the Soil:

  • VF tyres used at low pressure preserve the structure of the soil, while minimising compaction.
  • They encourage the growth of the crops’ root system and biological activity in the soil.
  • They allow good water infiltration to the different layers of soil, optimising yields without watering during the dry season.

This information is intended only to make you aware of the technical and functional aspects of agricultural tires and their use. It does not allow you to make a judgment or a definitive conclusion on a given problem. Only your agricultural tire expert is able to make a technical assessment and take a final decision, case by case.
