EIMA Agrimach, spotlights on made in Italy

15 Italian industries in the agro-mechanical sector are taking part, directly or through their local distributors, in the seventh edition of EIMA Agrimach, the international exhibition of agricultural machinery underway in Bangalore. FederUnacoma: important business opportunities on the Indian market for Italian agricultural machinery

From devices for agriculture 4.0 to irrigation and water management systems, from gardening machinery and tractors to tillage equipment and weeding machines. During the seventh edition of EIMA Agrimach - the international machinery exhibition being held in Bangalore until 3 September - Italian manufacturers are presenting some of the most innovative technological solutions for Indian agriculture.
Organised in partnership by the Indian Federation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry FICCI and the Federation of Italian Manufacturers FederUnacoma, the event is paticipated by 15 Italian brands, present in Bangalore both directly, with their Indian branches, and through their local distributors.
The Made in Italy machinery on display in Bangalore therefore covers a wide range of products, starting with components, which are represented by seven companies: Ama, Arag, Bertolini Idromeccanica, Braglia, Imovili, Serigrafia 76 and Udor. Although operating in the same sector of specialisation, that of component design and manufacture, these exhibiting industries boast highly differentiated product lines, ranging from sensors to adhesive graphics, from pumps to gearboxes. Solutions for chopping and biomulching are also in the foreground at EIMA Agrimach, with models offered by Negri, and equipment made by Casotti,  Cima e Dragone for pesticide treatments. In the harvesting and pruning sector, the spotlight will be on the technologies developed by Campagnola, while Oleomac will be presenting its new range for gardening and green maintenance. There are also latest generation technologies for pedestrian controlled tractors and tractors, with offerings from two major players in the sector, BCS and New Holland.
The Indian agricultural machinery market, which for years has been at the top of the world market in terms of sales volumes - FederUnacoma explains - offers important business opportunities to Italian agro-mechanical companies, some of which have even opened branches or production plants in India. An event like EIMA Agrimach therefore represents a further opportunity to put the national industry of the sector in contact with the reality and specific mechanisation needs of local agriculture.

Agricultural mechanisation, strategic cooperation between Italy and Serbia

During the Novi Sad agricultural fair, FederUnacoma president Alessandro Malavolti presented the 7th edition of Agrilevante, the great event for Mediterranean agriculture, to be held in Bari from 5 to 8 October. Delegates and buyers from Serbia are also expected in the Fiera del Levante pavilions.

Agrilevante, an international event

The participation of official foreign delegations from 35 countries, organised by Agenzia ICE and FederUnacoma, is confirmed. The programme for the presentation of the exhibition to the foreign press is in full swing: after the initiatives in Turkey, Morocco and Serbia, those in Greece and Algeria are already scheduled, while others are being planned in the target countries.

Agricultural machinery: market at risk pending the NRRP

Registration figures for the first quarter of the year indicate a decline for tractors, and a recovery for other types of machinery after the loss recorded in the first quarter of 2022. Overall, the market remains at a standstill, affected by the delay in the procedures for granting public funds. There is concern about the buying and selling of used machinery, which is growing dramatically and does not improve the technological level of Italian farms.

Agrilevante, the 2023 edition starts from Ciheam in Bari

During the press conference presenting the event, Ciheam director Maurizio Raeli stressed the strategic role of mechanisation for food safety. Bari's deputy mayor Di Sciascio highlighted the importance of the event for the entire city of Bari, while regional councillor Pentassuglia reiterated the importance of innovation for the renewal and evolution of agricultural economies. FederUnacoma president and director general Alessandro Malavolti and Simona Rapastella also spoke.
