Increasing food security is at the heart of AGCO’s Africa strategy


Our 150-hectare Future Farm in Zambia now features the full line of Fuse technologies.

Its facilities, which also include crop demonstration plots and GSI grain storage and protein production units, provide training in agronomy and modern agricultural practices to farmers, equipment operators and service people.

Plans for a second Future Farm in French-speaking West Africa are underway.

AGCO’s partnership with the international non-profit organization Cultivating New Frontiers in Agriculture is part of our vision to transform African agriculture through inclusive, sustainable mechanization solutions.

Our new Massey Ferguson Farm Mechanization Package, which consists of a tractor and multiple compatible implements, is aimed at farmers taking their first steps in mechanized agriculture.

Our annual Africa Summit brings together international leaders to share innovative approaches to further the development of the agricultural sector on the continent.
