Farmers Voices

"We always enjoy visiting AGRITECHNICA because it is simply a great event that has fascinated me ever since I went there with my parents as a child. You can talk to the manufacturers' contacts there in person, who you otherwise only know from the phone."

Cornelia Ehlert, trained farmer, agricultural business economist

"In addition, the exhibition is a great opportunity to find out and exchange information about the latest trends in national and international agricultural technology. It's always amazing to see things in passing from exhibitors who were completely unknown to us until then, things that can help us on the farm. For our family business, we are currently facing a number of questions and decisions from which we hope to gain new impetus at AGRITECHNICA, such as "What do arable farming and agricultural technology of the future look like in Germany, can we use the new and modern agricultural technology profitably on our farm and which small adjusting screws can we still turn to improve ourselves overall?"

Together with her husband Jürgen, Mrs Ehlert runs an arable farm with services in Unterweisenborn near Schenklengsfeld in Hesse.

"As one of the three German-Brazilian Chambers of Industry and Commerce, we are the first port of call in Porto Alegre for agricultural matters. We have been a travel partner of AGRITECHNICA for several years, organising groups of visitors from Brazil."

Dietmar Sukop, General Manager of the German-Brazilian Chamber of Industry and Commerce in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil

"Year after year, AGRITECHNICA inspires with its professionalism and is the reference par excellence when it comes to finding out about the technologies of tomorrow. It also offers an excellent platform for the international exchange of know-how and for expanding personal networks. Our participants in the group tours use AGRITECHNICA not only as an inexhaustible source of information, but also as an opportunity to find new business partners for joint market entry to Brazil, as well as a unique shopping centre for agricultural technology. Especially with regard to the key theme of Green Productivity, AGRITECHNICA offers excellent opportunities to make agricultural production in Brazil even more sustainable. We, i.e. our group of around 25 visitors from Brazil, are looking forward to another unforgettable AGRITECHNICA and successful business."

Visitor comments on AGRITECHNICA at SIMA in France

"For me, AGRITECHNICA 2023 is indispensable for several reasons. First of all, I want to get an overview of technological developments - and also of developments that have not appealed to me so far."

Helmut Bleckwenn, agricultural engineer (FH)

"In addition, the talks and meetings with professional colleagues and representatives of the industry, which can lead to new impulses for farm development, are a nice side effect of visiting the fair. We visit AGRITECHNICA together with our employees so that we leave our farm together to gain new experiences and impressions. This is often a motivational boost for the further development of our fields of work."

Mr Bleckwenn runs an arable farm with cereals, potatoes, sugar beet, field beans, soybeans, silage maize and clover grass in Garmissen near Schellerten in the Hildesheim Börde in Lower Saxony, is Managing Director of the DexTerra GmbH+Co.KG and BioTerra Gmbh+Co.KG (Naturland farm) joint ventures and is involved in the Supervisory Board of Nordzucker AG, among other things.

"As a DLG member, I visit every EuroTier and AGRITECHNICA. I use the world's two largest agricultural trade fairs as a source of knowledge in the agricultural sector. On the one hand, they are a good contact opportunity for information with the exhibitors and machine manufacturers, but on the other hand, they are THE platform for like-minded farmers who are always looking ahead."

Martin Ziaja, dairy farmer with 160 dairy cows and 200 ha in Dobrozién in Silesia in Poland.

"For me, the two exhibitions are the place for the best exchange of experiences, and to motivate farmers from neighbouring countries to look into the German agricultural sector. This year I would like to invite all Polish colleagues from the agricultural sector to Poland Day on 14 November, where we have put together an interesting programme with many lectures and discussions."

Mr Zaja is voluntarily engaged in the board work of Polish cattle breeding associations and is a member of the European Dairy Farmers (EDF) and organiser of agricultural tours in Poland.

"We have made it a practice to attend AGRITECHNICA to learn about new equipment and technologies to introduce to the region. Almost always, we return home with information from our current manufacturer partners and new contacts with companies developing new approaches."

Doug Edney, Chairman of the Board, Edney Distributing Co., Inc., USA

"The Green Productivity emphasis by AGRITECHNICA is needed perhaps now more than ever; to meet the demands of increasing productivity balanced by the need to be good stewards of the land and control increasingly expensive inputs needed. Manufacturers from around the world are continuously developing equipment and technology to meet the challenge. I consider attending AGRITECHNICA a “must do”!"

Edney Distributing Co. is an importer/distributor of equipment for agriculture, lawn maintenance, forestry, and light construction. We partner with several European manufacturers to introduce and support their product lines in the north central U.S.

Sur 600 mètres carrés de stand Grégoire Besson, nous mettrons en vedette pendant Agritechnica nos trois familles de produits (charrues, outils à disques et à dents), où nous aurons dans chacune des nouveautés. L’objectif n’est pas de montrer toute la gamme mais plutôt nos produits novateurs.
