Reaching farmers and agribusiness professionals, “Agritechnica on Tour” is a new series of virtual events, each exploring a farm machinery-related topic in Poland, Romania, South East Asia and the UK and the Ukraine and the CIS region.
These events are to be launched at the pre-show online platform “Agritechnica digital” on 16 November when the first event Asia and Horti Asia Regional Summit takes place online.
In the context of agricultural machinery, the focus of the Agritechnica trade fair, each online country event explores practices and trends that will equip the attendees with knowledge they can apply while making their final investment decisions on machinery at Agritechnica in Hanover, Germany. Attendees of the Agritechnica on Tour are privy to a preview of Agritechnica 2022, in addition to access to the experts and practitioners, who will present not only new findings but also practical experience.
“The demand for new knowledge on smarter farming never stops. Knowledge acquisition at Agritechnica ranks among a farmer’s top methods to increase efficiency. The Agritechnica on Tour series delivers concentrated, country specific information to farmers in a way that inspires debate. After the sessions, participants will return to their farm business, investment-ready and with new impetus,” says Freya von Czettritz, Agritechnica Project Manager.
Agritechnica organiser DLG (German Agricultural society) together with its long-standing partners in each of the countries are defining the topics that occupy farmers right now, four months ahead of the Agritechnica trade fair, from sustainable land use and trends in future machinery ownership to efficient and autonomous machines.
