POTATO professionals from all over Europe are expected to descent on PotatoEurope, the outdoor trade fair for potato cultivation and machinery, on September 7th and 8th.
This year's event will take place on the estate Rittergut Bockerode in Springe-Mittelrode near Hanover, Germany, with exhibitors and demonstrations offering information on all aspects of modern potato production and processing. The focus at the trade fair will be on breeding, fertilisation, plant protection, technology for production and processing, as well as trade. There will be trial plots along with machinery demonstrations for planting, harvesting, loading and mechanical weed control as well as information events round off the technical offerings.
PotatoEurope 2022 is organised by DLG (German Agricultural Society) and supported by the German Potato Industry Association (Union der Deutschen Kartoffelwirtschaft e.V. – UNIKA). More than 200 exhibitors and around 10,000 trade visitors are expected. Registration deadline for exhibitors planning to use the trial plots is February 28th. Stand areas that are located in the field or in the marquee hall as well as participation in the machinery demonstrations can be registered until April 29th.
The PotatoEurope trade fair takes place annually alternating between Belgium, the Netherlands, France and Germany. Each country hosts PotatoEurope every four years.
