Cadonix’ Arcadia is well known as the tool of choice of leading edge EV and automotive companies, however, a large proportion of the userbase is off-highway and agricultural vehicles.

As spring is now upon us, its the ideal time to showcase one of Cadonix successful sponsorship users, who are really making furrows in tractor design world!

Since 1999, the ULtrac team has been representing Université Laval’s Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences at the annual “International Quarter Scale Tractor Student Design Competition”.
