Agritechnica represented at AGROmashEXPO

Frankfurt am Main, Germany, 17th January, 2017 – Visitors to Hungary’s AgromashEXPO agricultural trade exhibition will have the opportunity to find out more about Agritechnica, the world’s leading trade fair for agricultural machinery that takes place every two years in Germany.

Representatives from Agritechnica’s organizer, DLG (German Agricultural Society), will be present at the event, which takes place at the Budapest Fair Center from 25-28 January. They will provide detailed information on the program for this year’s trade fair, and how farmers and industry experts can attend.

Agritechnica attracted over 450,000 visitors at the last event and of these 100,000 were international visitors– including thousands from Hungary and the neighboring countries. Slightly more than 60 percent of the country’s surface area of 9.3 million hectares is dedicated to agriculture, with 50  percent used for growing crops. The DLG team will be working hard to attract more representatives of the country’s agricultural sector to the Agritechnica exhibition, which takes place in mid-November.

Agritechnica offers an unparalleled range of solutions well-suited to farmers from Hungary and neighboring countries. Visitors can discover for themselves the latest and most comprehensive range of equipment and solutions, from tractors and harvesters to implements for cultivation, sowing, fertilizer application and crop protection.

Leading manufacturers time their innovation cycles and product launches to coincide with Agritechnica, which takes place every two years, and more than 310 innovations were registered at the event in 2015. In addition, Agritechnica offers the unique opportunity for a practical, hands-on experience through on-site field trials that demonstrate the benefits of adopting new farming techniques.

Agritechnica 2017 takes place from 12-18 November at Hanover’s Exhibition Grounds. More than 452,000 visitors and 2,892 exhibitors attended the event in 2015, making it the world’s largest trade fair dedicated to agricultural machinery and technology.

Editor’s notes:
The DLG (Deutsche Landwirtschafts-Gesellschaft, or German Agricultural Society) was founded by the engineer and writer Max Eyth in 1885. Based in Frankfurt am Main, it provides an independent and open forum to promote the exchange of knowledge and shaping of opinion in the agricultural and food sectors. More than 200 full-time employees and about 3,000 voluntary experts are engaged in working on behalf of the DLG’s 26,000 members. The organization’s well-known test center for technology and farm inputs, which is the largest of its kind in the world, is accredited and recognized nationally and internationally.

The DLG has organized trade exhibitions in the agricultural and food sectors for more than 125 years. It launched Agritechnica, which is held every two years, in 1985. The event initially took place in Frankfurt am Main, before moving to its current home in Hanover in 1995. DLG also organizes EuroTier, which alternates with Agritechnica at Hanover’s Exhibition Grounds; EnergyDecentral; the DLG Feldtage; and, with Koelnmesse, Anuga FoodTec.
