At Agritechnica, scheduled to be held Feb. 27-March 5, 2022, organizer DLG (German Agricultural Society) will present three different awards for innovative engineering. Recognizing outstanding contributions to agricultural engineering in shaping a sustainable agriculture, the innovation award scheme is open for registrations until September 15, 2021. Exhibitors may submit not only systems and components, finished machines or products for practical use, but also visions, concepts and pioneering work in agricultural technology as part of the new innovation award "DLG Agrifuture Concepts."
Innovation Award Agritechnica
The DLG’s Agritechnica Innovation Award is one of the leading award schemes in the international agricultural industry. Conferred to innovations for practical application, these awards underscore the value of modern agricultural machinery to farming. Any company exhibiting at Agritechnica may take part in the DLG Innovation Awards by entering its innovations. Following in-depth consultation and deliberation, an independent DLG Innovation Commission selects the products that will receive the 'Agritechnica Innovation Award', either gold or silver.
SYSTEMS & COMPONENTS Trophy – Engineers’ Choice
For the second time, DLG will be awarding the “Systems & Components Trophy – Engineers’ Choice” for innovations in agricultural systems and components. With this trophy, the DLG is acknowledging the inventive spirit of the supplier industry along with its great importance to agricultural technology. Following the identification of shortlisted innovations, the final award-winners are selected by the jury consisting of development engineers from agricultural machinery manufacturers exhibiting at Agritechnica.
New: DLG Agrifuture Concept Winners
At Agritechnica, the DLG will be launching a new award scheme “DLG Agrifuture Concepts” that recognizes pioneering achievements and future visions. Such solutions serve as decisive drivers for the sustainability of crop production. Engineers from all parts of the world are working on technical solutions for the future of agriculture. However, not all ideas and concepts make it to a finished product. In some cases technical or legal factors restrict their development to market products. Nevertheless many of these concepts have the potential to inspire and stimulate both farmers and engineers to think in new ways. The award scheme recognizes the relevance of pioneers for the future of agriculture in five to 10 years. More about this new award here.
