Networking. Transferring knowledge. Promotion innovation.
Knowledge and expertise – drawing on its network of professionals in Germany and abroad DLG develops solutions to the challenges facing agriculture and agribusiness. Around 900 experts – farmers, academics, consultants, public sector specialists, policymakers and representatives from agribusiness – work closely together on a voluntary basis. They tackle issues key to the future of farming in the fields of crop production, agricultural machinery, livestock husbandry, animal nutrition, farm management, sustainability, aquaculture, bioenergy and forestry. The basis for the high scientific content and direct relation to practice lies in the work performed in the committees and other panels, the professional think tanks of the DLG network.
