Today, there are seven billion people on this earth - and this number is clearly on the rise. In a report from November 2011, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, FAO, stated that food production has to increase by around 70 percent by 2050. However, there is not a lot of land left that could be converted into farmland. Therefore, available resources must be used more effectively and sustainably. This requires modern agricultural and forestry machines. Bosch Rexroth supplies modern travel drives and energy-efficient working hydraulics as well as hardware and software allowing to electronically control these machines.
Our specialists for the Agricultural and Forestry Machinery industry sector developed drive and control solutions customized to your needs. These solutions are founded on robust and reliable products, including gear pumps, variable displacement pumps, radial piston motors, steerings units, control blocks and electronic control units.
One way of increasing efficiency is by precision agriculture which is characterized by an increased use of electronic controls. The EHR electrohydraulic hitch control, for instance, allows for a more precise cultivation of the ground. In addition, it makes it significantly easier for the user to handle the machine with the attachment used. With Bosch Rexroth, you will get all EHR system components from one source – including the controller, control valve, control panel and sensors.
