The potato is one of the five most important crops cultivated worldwide. However, growing potatoes is associated with a high workload which can be significantly reduced by the use of technology. In addition, high yield and a tuber quality suitable for exploitation presuppose intensive plant management while the crop is growing.
We look forward to having PotatoEurope back in Germany in 2018 at Rittergut Bockerode, near Hanover, on September 12-13. Why is it a "must" für potato growers to visit Germany this year?
This year’s Agritechnica Asia trade fair in Bangkok will include the new Systems & Components Asia exhibition for the first time.

Farmers and companies involved with food production that want a self-sufficient source of electricity and heat could find a combined heat and power (CHP) plant a particularly rational form of energy production. Thanks to recent advances in drive technology and exhaust after-treatment, CHPs can provide the energy needed for farm operations or food production, while meeting future emission limits.
