- During a special conference at the annual Agrishow Experience, Trelleborg Wheel Systems, proud sponsor of Tractor of the Year Brazil —Trator Do Ano Brasil— Award 2021/ 2022, took part in the closing ceremony of the competition to announce the Winners Circle
The event was the culmination of a year of teamwork and was streamed live to participants in October, 2021.
Trelleborg Wheel Systems South America President, José Carlos de Oliveira, remarked during the event, “This finale of the Tractor of the Year Brazil Award marks the end of yet another year of challenges and opportunities for the agricultural world. We wish to extend our heartfelt thanks to all of the people who took part in presenting, evaluating, and voting for the Tractor of the Year Brazil Award 2021/ 2022.”
A top team of agricultural machinery experts from leading universities evaluated each of the candidates across Brazil. Awards were given to companies in three categories: Small tractors (up to 100 hp), Medium tractors (100-200 hp), and Large tractors (over 200 hp). The jury also selected the Great Tractor of the Year along with the Great Special Tractor of the Year – as the best in the special tractor category – and the Most Voted Brand by the farming community at large.
