Designed by Monarch Tractor, this new automomous compact tractor is the first of its kind that delivers robust performance while producing zero carbon emissions.
For its ecological design, the tractor was awarded with a 2021 Green Good Design® Award by The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies and The Chicago Athenaeum.
The Monarch Tractor was designed from the ground up to serve the modern farmer in a variety of ways. It includes a fully electric drivetrain with industry-low maintenance requirements.
For the unlikely scenario where the platform hits a snag, the Monarch Tractor comes with troubleshooting and repair guides built right into the onboard tablet and web app, as well as remote support so farmers can identify and fix problems quickly.
Monarch is a no compromise electric tractor that does everything an existing tractor can, with double the torque, added data collection, and lower operating costs.
The Monarch tractor platform combines powerful tools, automated operations, driver optional modes, and data analytics with the strength and power only possible with an all-electric platform.
Monarch features mechanization, automation, and data analysis to put power back in farmers’ hands, increasing labor productivity and maximizing yields. This triple threat will cut overhead and emissions.
Monarch is packed with safety features to keep your operations running smoothly and employees safe, day or night.
Artificial intelligence, roll and collision prevention, 360° cameras and a full sensor suite give Monarch the safest operation with or without a driver.
Via a smartphone or personal device, users receive tractor alerts, updates on current micro weather conditions, detailed operations reports, data collection, analysis, and storage for more efficient farm planning.
The Monarch Tractor collects and analyzes crop data every day it operates in the field. It can work with farmers’ current implements as well as the next generation of smart implements.
Sensors and imaging are processed to provide critical data points that can be used for real-time implement adjustments.
Utilizing machine learning, Monarch Tractor is able to digest this data and provide long-term analysis of field health, improving accuracy the longer it runs.
“Monarch tractor is ushering in the digital transformation of farming with unprecedented intelligence, technology and safety features,’ Praveen Penmetsa, co-founder & CEO, Monarch Tractor comments.
“We have assembled a world-class team of farmers, engineers, and scientists to meet today’s farming demands and are empowering farmers by giving them intelligent tools to collect more predictive data to implement sustainable practices, better share their story and make more money.”
“Hundreds of farmers have signed on to receive a monarch tractor and we look forward to delivering a new level of sustainability and efficiency to their existing farm operations.”
