Have you been waiting for your chance to see the world’s largest farm machinery show? Grainews and Leader Tours have put together a tour to Germany just for Grainews readers. This tour includes two days at Agritechnica, and a visit to
the CLAAS combine factory. There will also be a walking tour of Berlin, a stroll through Kassell and a tour of the Heidelberg Castle.
The trip runs from November 8 to 16, 2017.
This will be machinery editor Scott Garvey’s fifth trip to Agritechnica. Scott will be along to orient guests and make sure you know where you want to go once we get to the show. I’ll be hosting the trip — making sure everyone gets on the right bus each day, and answering any questions that come up during the week.
I’m intrigued by the visit to the DLG-Test Centre. This organization is funded by the German government, and does impartial testing on agricultural machinery and equipment and farm inputs. They say they are “the leading testing and certification service provider for independent and impartial technology tests in the agriculture sector.” You can read more about this at www.dlg.org. (Switch from German to English with the flag in the top right corner of the screen.)
