In Germany for example, the agricultural industry is strongly represented. On the one hand, farmers supply us with food; on the other hand, they contribute to the supply of raw materials and energy.

Approximately half of Germany's land area is used for agriculture. This corresponds to an area of 16.7 million hectares. Nearly one million people are employed in this sector and are divided into approximately 275,000 companies, with both the number of businesses and the number of employees declining. The produced quantities on the other hand have increased. This is due to the fact that companies are becoming economically more efficient and productive. This is due to the use of high-performance vehicles and machinery, which greatly facilitate the cultivation of the fields as well as the processes on the farm. Conveyor belt systems, for example, enable the fast and easy transport of sugar beets, potatoes etc. and modern irrigation systems enable automatic irrigation of fields.

Powerful gearboxes are essential to drive these solutions and machines. Premium Stephan offers high quality gearboxes and geared motors for this field of application.
