The show's record growth reflects the current buoyancy in the world agricultural economy.
"Agritechnica is recognised by both manufacturers and farmers as the platform where significant new developments are launched," points out Agritechnica's project manager Tobias Eichberg.
"That is reflected in the number of major innovations which premier at the event - this year we expect an even greater number of products making their debut."
Every global and pan-European agricultural machinery company will
be represented at the exhibition. Expect to see more products from
countries such as Turkey, Italy, Spain and the UK. As well as its
worldwide influence, Agritechnica is a particular springboard to
eastern and central Europe.
"Agricultural equipment producers report major benefits from presenting innovations and solutions to the targeted customer audience which attends the show," points out Eichberg.
"Independent surveys reveal that visitor numbers are made up of business-oriented farmers, contractors, machinery rings and dealers from all over the world."
As well as the usual lines of machinery exhibits and innovations, this year there will be a particular focus on:
- Climate change and soil conservation "world soil and tillage
