AGRITECHNICA on tour to India

Frankfurt am Main, Germany, 13th January, 2017 – Visitors to this year’s Field Days India 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 in India, which takes place at Sarabha, in the district of Ludhiana, Punjab, on 24/25 January. They will provide detailed information on the program for this year’s trade fair, and advise how farmers and industry experts can attend the AGRITECHNICA show in Hanover.
AGRITECHNICA attracted close to 100,000 international visitors in 2015 out of a total 450,000 – including many hundreds  from India. DLG International, the subsidiary company of DLG, organizes the Field Days India, and the organization’s team will be working hard to attract more representatives from the agricultural sector in the world’s seventh largest country to the Agritechnica exhibition, which takes place in mid-November this year.
Agritechnica  offers an unparalleled range of solutions that is well-suited to Indian farmers. 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 400  innovations were registered at the event in 2015. In addition, the World’s No. 1 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.

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.
