Trelleborg has announced a new stop in Europe on its 2016 agricultural tyre roadshow. The tyre and wheel manufacturer will attend the Q-Team Demo Event in Waremme, Belgium on 17 and 18 September. Trelleborg will conduct two field demonstrations per day to showcase the benefits of a large tyre footprint in boosting the global efficiency and productivity of farming operations.
Trelleborg has been selected as official sponsor and original equipment supplier for all the tractors on show during the Claas Roadshow Event in Turkey. The roadshow started on 26 July and will stop in seven different locations around Turkey to meet approximately 5,000 farming professionals. Trelleborg field demonstrations will be held during the day to showcase the importance of selecting the optimal tyre inflation pressure for specific farming operations, as recommended using the Trelleborg Load Calculator (TLC).
Trelleborg has presented its agricultural products in a Field Day demonstration and hosted a forum focused on soil protection and sustainable development on Hongxing Farm, Heilongjiang, China. The 21 May event hosted more than 400 visitors, comprising professional farmers, tractor dealers, trade media and associations, and professors and researchers from China Agricultural University, Northeast Agricultural University and the Academy of Agricultural Sciences Heilongjiang.
Following one-day events in Italy, Sweden, Austria, Poland, France and Spain, Trelleborg concluded its 2015 European Road Show for agricultural tyres at Honingham Thorpe Farm in Colton, Norfolk in the UK on 7 October.
