New Delhi fair, technological solutions for Asian agriculture
Sixth rendezvous for the exhibition dedicated to agricultural machinery and equipment for the Indian sub-continent, organized by FederUnacoma and Ficci, and scheduled in New Delhi in the first week of December. Growing numbers of exhibitors and visitors. A project will be presented during the event, promoted among others by the Emilia-Romagna Region, which also includes field trials of orchard machinery
From 5 to 7 December 2019, New Delhi will host the sixth edition of Eima Agrimach India, the fair dedicated to agricultural mechanization for the Indian subcontinent organized by FederUnacoma, through its service company FederUnacoma surl, and by the Indian Federation of Chambers of Commerce and of the Industry (FICCI). Once again, for its implementation the organizers will be able to count on the support of the Indian Ministry of Agriculture, the Indian Council of Agricultural Research, the Emilia-Romagna Region and the ICE Agency.
After the successes of the past editions, which saw a constant growth both in terms of visitors - over 42,000 in the last edition, including 6,800 from outside India - and of exhibitors - with over 400 Indian and international brands present at the fair in 2017 - Eima Agrimach 2019 promises to be an event even richer in content. The event is developing an increasing international vocation, thanks also to invitations of operators from developing countries, mainly from south-east Asia and sub-Saharan Africa, achieved thanks to the involvement of Indian and Italian government agencies in charge of internationalization.
The Indian Government, represented by the new Minister of Agriculture Narendra Singh Tomar, declared the doubling of farmers’ incomes by 2022 as the primary goal. The success of such an ambitious project can only be achieved through the adoption of innovative technologies and cultivation techniques, which are able to increase both the quantity of the harvested agricultural products and their quality. In addition to this challenge, there are those posed by climate change and the need for proper management of natural resources, primarily water resources, as well as a demographic growth that appears to be unstoppable. The Italian industry of machinery and equipment for agriculture and horticulture, leader in the world for its product range, can provide the technological solutions that Indian agriculture needs, and Eima Agrimach is the ideal platform to present them to a vast audience of operators.
Moreover, Eima Agrimach bears witness to the commitment that FederUnacoma has been making for over ten years in promoting Italian agricultural machinery in India, a commitment that will also translate into support for the “Il Frutteto” project, which is led by the Indo-Italian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and which includes the Emilia-Romagna Region among its stakeholders. Within the grounds of the Agricultural University of the State of Jammu & Kashmir, located near the capital Srinagar, an area has been created for the planting of fruit trees of Italian origin, in which Italian technologies will also be demonstrated for fruit growing. “Il Frutteto”, which will be presented at Eima Agrimach, represents the first step in a structured programme to promote agricultural mechanization, focused on the promotion and demonstration of machines and equipment for specific crops.
