Special feature “Future crop protection – responsibility needs ideas”

Hall 15 Stand G32

Crop protection – whether mechanical or chemical – is one of the most important activities to ensure successful crop production. It facilitates sufficient production of healthy foods and agricultural commodities.

The scope of current developments ranges from forecasting models, nozzle technology, boom guidance, GPS control to drone and robot technology. 

  • What changes are necessary to be able to work more efficiently and thus in a more eco-friendly manner?
  • What action can farmers take to improve the way they use machinery and technology? 

The Special “Future Crop Protection – Responsibility Needs Ideas” at AGRITECHNICA offers a unique platform to answer these questions and present new developments in the field of crop protection.

 

As a farmer, consultant and private contractor, you can… 

  • find out about innovations in crop protection
  • compare and discuss systems and offerings at a single venue
  • share your ideas and exchange experiences with colleagues and suppliers while examining the equipment
  • use the presence of experts and specialists to obtain answers to all your questions.
