“Future Crop Protection – responsibility needs ideas”

“Future Crop Protection – responsibility needs ideas”DLG will be co-operating with Informationssystem Integrierte Pflanzenproduktion e.V. (Information System Integrated Plant Production) on a new special feature at Agritechnica 2017

FRANKFURT/MAIN, Germany, April 12, 2017 – The requirements for sustainable agriculture are to reconcile productivity with resources and environmental protection. To this end, farmers need to make the most of available know-how and technologies to implement these goals efficiently with their crops. In an increasingly digitized world, a multitude of innovative technologies are now available.

Agritechnica, the world's largest trade fair for agricultural technology, is being presented in 2017 under the theme "Green Future – Smart Technology" for 2017, and will feature the latest technologies and trends designed to secure a sustainable increase in productivity in agriculture.

In particular, these include the latest developments in crop protection. Forecasting models, sprayer nozzle technology and GPS guidance and boom section control combine with drones and robotic technology to help produce sufficient healthy food and agricultural raw materials.
At Agritechnica 2017, the organizer DLG (German Agricultural Society) will co-operate with the company Information System Integrated Plant Production to present a special new feature dedicated to plant protection, "Future Crop Protection – responsibility needs ideas".

This special feature will create a unique information platform that will give manufacturers, institutions and other industry specialists the opportunity to present their latest technologies and systems, and for visitors to compare what’s available in one place.

“Crop protection, whether mechanical, chemical or biological, is playing an increasingly important role,” says Dr. Klaus Erdle of DLG, who is project manager of the new feature. “Its precise implementation, efficacy and safety are prerequisites for sustainable operating success, and this means it regularly forms the basis for discussions within and outside the agricultural sector.”

Agritechnica 2017 will be held from 12 to 18 November 2017 (Preview Days on 12 and 13 November) at the Exhibition Grounds in Hanover. The DLG expects more than 2,900 exhibitors from all over the world at this year’s show.
