Some people may find it rosy while others are rather sceptical, but  above all, we want to design and shape our future. With our and your ideas for a globalized world that focuses on its regional and local strengths and with visions and perspectives, but above all with the awareness that agriculture has a key role in everything. For grounded pioneers!

Digital Twins at LEMKEN

The ongoing digitalisation does not stop at LEMKEN’s development activities.
During the design process, simulation models are created on the basis of CAD data, which allow our machines to be fully tested with realistic loads – without having to build a single device.
A digital twin!

Improvements and innovations are thus incorporated into the machines even before the prototype phase, thus shortening the time to market.
LEMKEN customers benefit from the fact that technical innovations find a quick way into the product.

A real added value!

Change of system

“If we grow food in the future in the same way as today or in the past, we are certainly wrong. We need a change of system. We think too conservatively for that.

But if I were to tell you,
>>We’ll still be using smartphones in 2050<<
…you’d think I was gaga.”

Glocalization is the next big thing!

Yeah, you read it right: Glocalization.

A fusion of nationalization and globalization, according to futurologist Matthias Horx..

In it, the three future trends Mega Farming, Next Nature and Bio Plus can be found.

Mega Farming

Mega Farming is about highly technical agriculture, which is mainly done by robots. Humans control the machines in the sense of an efficient and biological raw material economy.

Next Nature

Next Nature describes the category of new products, since a large part of the population rejects meat from factory farming or monocultures. This frees up the market for alternative products that no longer differ in taste from conventional products. The products are grown in high greenhouses or even underground. Directly in the cities.

Bio Plus

Horx understands Bio Plus as concepts such as solidarity-based agriculture and urban gardening. Restaurants, for example, are supplied directly by the farmer. All in the spirit of animal welfare, traceable production sites and ecological-economic supply chains.

Farms of the future

Climate protection is a bit like bread. On everyone’s lips.
This is also one of the key issues for agriculture. The Forum Modern Agriculture has developed three scenarios of what farms could look like in the future:
The cycle farm, where the nutrient and production cycles close.
The participatory farm, where consumption meets agriculture.
And the Smart Data Court, where data-controlled production ensures climate protection..
No matter how different the approaches are, they are all about reducing emissions, binding climate gases and not simply letting climate change happen.
It is to act accordingly.
So that in future everyone will be talking about more bread and less climate change.
