nh2_003New Holland, Pennsylvania – Farm tractor manufacturer New Holland is presenting a concept hydrogen-powered tractor at the Farm Progress Show later this month. The NH2 is a 106-horsepower working prototype able to perform all the tasks of a tractor while operating virtually silently and emitting no pollutants.

The experimental tractor is designed to free farmers from the cost of purchased fossil fuel and allow them to achieve fuel autonomy while meeting increasingly stringent emissions standards.

Unlike many people, farmers have the space to install alternative electricity generation systems, such as solar, wind, biomass or waste and then store that power as hydrogen, the company said.
