Global climate change is already impacting traditionally stable crop lands, desiccating once rain-fed agricultural biomes and inundating previously semi-arid lands. Instability in petroleum markets is driving input costs to new highs at all levels. Agribusiness and traditional family farmers alike are scrambling to adapt to the new reality, looking to OEMs for innovative equipment that is fuel efficient, will reduce operating costs, preserve the land, and allow them to adapt to the new farming conditions. For example, as conditions in formerly semi-arid regions become wetter, soil compaction due to excessive equipment weight will increase demand for lighter equipment. Those new to dry land farming will demand improvements in zero-tillage equipment to maximize yields and minimize exposure of soil to desiccation and wind erosion.
