A historical trade fair for the "Adriatic" agriculture
The 56th edition of the Lanciano National Trade Fair of Agriculture is scheduled in the trade fair centre of Abruzzo from 24 to 26 March.
The exhibition, held on a total surface of 60,000 square meters, hosts exhibitors and displays in four sections products, machines and equipment for all types of agricultural activities.
“Allevare” provides a 360-degree view of the livestock sector with feed, equipment and specific medications phytopharmaceuticals o pesticides; “Omnia Verde”, is dedicated to accessories for public and private green areas, including plants and seeds and “Servizi all'Impresa” to bodies, institutions and companies offering services to farms in the technical, financial and building sectors, while “Coltivare” is centred on agricultural mechanisation.
Last section's list of product groups is really wide and ranges from tractors, machines for soil processing, harvesting and forestry to those for food processing, particularly winemaking and olive production.
In 2016, the Abruzzo region introduced more mechanical means compared to the previous year, with new registrations of 500 tractors, 30 tractors with loading platform and 324 trailers, with an increase between 4 and 8% (figures by FederUnacoma).
The exhibition, leader of all the events scheduled in Lanciano, also offers a rich programme of meetings and conferences to take stock of the agricultural sector and its future perspectives.
Agriculture still represents in this region an important segment of the production system, and needs a constant updating in order to be always effective and competitive. Specialized exhibitions, such as that of Lanciano, offer all operators an opportunity to get in touch with new agricultural techniques and the technologies necessary to reach this goal.
