Guests informed themselves about trends in their line of business, cultivation methods and modern agricultural technology. Many of them also stopped over at the stand of the AGRAVIS station. "At the DLG Field Days we presented ourselves with many pertinent solutions for farmers and demonstrated that we will not leave anybody alone with his questions. Most visitors to the stand were very interested and asked for detailed information. The DLG Field Days are important for us and have been very successful this year as well," AGRAVIS Member of the Managing Board Dirk Bensmann stressed.

Besides, Bensmann also welcomed a guest of honour to the AGRAVIS stand: Federal Minister of Agriculture Christian Schmidt was on a walkabout of the fair grounds and stopped at some selected stations.
