The Climate & Nature cultivation program
An example of our achievements within agriculture is the development of a smarter way of growing wheat, which has up to 20% less climate impact and at the same time increases biodiversity. We continue to develop and improve cultivation programs as part of our efforts to make grain cultivation even more sustainable.
Fertilisers are one of the major sources of emissions within agriculture and is therefore one of our most important research areas. Fertilisers known as BAT fertilisers are already a part of our Climate & Nature cultivation concept and is an important first step in tackling emissions.
Fossil free tractors
For Lantmännen it’s important to contribute to the green transition of farm tractors, from using fossil fuels to renewables. This is why we offer several environmentally friendly alternatives, for example farm tractors from Valtra powered by HVO fuel. HVO fuel, a hydrotreated vegetable oil, is 100 percent renewable and has a 50-90 percent lower climate impact than fossil diesel. With HVO the tractor’s motor works more efficiently which decreases fuel consumption and thus reduces the tractor’s climate impact.
