DLG - Job- & Career Portal


The greatest challenge facing humanity is to feed the world's growing population in a healthy, safe way.

To achieve this, we need  global agriculture and a food industry that produces more profitably and at the same time protects the soil and the environment.

This can only be achieved with innovative technologies and committed people who want to change the world.

Our solutions start where our food is produced: on the farms.

Among other things, we offer know-how on the latest technologies, sustainable farming methods, biodiversity, organic farming and the quality of food.

Numerous publications, workshops, seminars and trade fairs carry this knowledge into the industry network and beyond into the world.

Whether you are a specialist or manager, a young professional or a career starter, we're looking for you!

Become part of our team and build a sustainable future with us.
