Agrilevante 2023: the organisational machine is up and running

Registration opened this morning for exhibiting industries that will take part in the event in Bari from 5 to 8 October. Great expectations for an exhibition dedicated to technologies for agricultural supply chains typical of the Mediterranean area, and which aims to repeat the levels of public attendance and international prestige achieved in 2019, before the suspension due to the health emergency.

Agrilevante returns to the international exhibition calendar and celebrates its seventh edition from 5 to 8 October at the Bari exhibition centre. This morning, the exhibition's organising body, FederUnacoma surl, opened registration for exhibiting companies on the specially prepared on-line platform, thus starting the march towards the October event, one of the most important for the agricultural sector in the entire Mediterranean area. After the suspension of the 2021 edition due to the health emergency, the biennial Agrilevante - which has always been organised with the support of the Presidency and the Department of Agriculture of the Apulia Region and in collaboration with the Nuova Fiera del Levante - aims to confirm the results of the 2019 edition, when the number of exhibiting companies reached 360, representing 19 countries, and visitors from 65 countries exceeded 80 thousand. The international character is the strong point of this exhibition, which includes the active collaboration of the ICE Agency for the organisation of foreign delegations, and which offers technologies for all the main production chains of the Mediterranean and African regions: grains, olive oil, wine, fruit and vegetables, livestock, and non-food and energy raw materials. Operators from Southern Europe, the Balkans, the Middle East, North and Sub-Saharan Africa will find a vast selection of tractors, harvesting machines, equipment, irrigation and treatment systems, and advanced electronic devices for every type of processing and every model of agriculture in the Fiera del Levante pavilions. Along with the more than 8,000 models of machinery and equipment, significant interest will be aroused by the exhibition of prized breeds of cattle, horses, sheep, goats and poultry breeds. The presence of a section dedicated to technologies for Agriculture 4.0 will also draw interest, while in the coming weeks the programme of conventions, conferences, and workshops will be drawn up in collaboration with prestigious institutions such as the University of Bari and the Mediterranean Agronomic Institute, and with important organisations in the agricultural sector and the agro-mechanical supply chain.

Agricultural mechanisation in India, the strategic role of EIMA Agrimach

The robust growth of the agricultural machinery market has not yet filled the technological deficit of Indian agriculture. Forecasts indicate that the incremental trend, favoured by state subsidy programs, will continue in the coming years with investments in the latest generation of machinery. Agromechanical exhibitions are a knowledge hub.
