The Forum Modern Agriculture (FML) and its more than 30 partners are once again organizing the ErlebnisBauernhof as part of the International Green Week in Berlin. Under the motto “Securing nutrition. Protect nature.” the exhibitors show how agriculture succeeds in ensuring our supply of high-quality food and at the same time implementing a variety of measures to protect nature, biodiversity and animal welfare.
Because sustainability and security of supply – that is no contradiction. Modern agriculture manages both. The adventure farm can be found in Hall 3.2.
Why are rapeseed, corn and sugar beet real all-rounders? How are cows kept? And what is agriculture already doing today for more sustainability, animal welfare and climate protection? At the ErlebnisBauernhof, everything revolves around the solutions proposed by agriculture to the pressing questions of our time – from the origin marking of meat to the use of climate-friendly biofuels to the breeding of climate-resistant plant varieties. Visitors will learn how agricultural machinery processes satellite data, how wheat and oats can be fertilized in a needs-based and nature-friendly manner and how diseases can be treated precisely.
Exciting round tables about modern agriculture
In addition to the various stands on the ErlebnisBauernhof, an extensive stage program will also take place in the hall, in which security of supply and the topics of sustainability and climate protection will be in the foreground. Moderator Helena Felixberger and her talk guests take visitors into the fascinating world of modern agriculture. Current debates are held around tank, trough, plate, biodiversity, the preservation of biodiversity, animal welfare, climate protection and security of supply. All round tables can be viewed from January 2023 at moderne-landwirtschaft.de/aktuelle-aktionen/.
Have a chat with the AgrarScouts
Whether from the stable or from the field – at the adventure farm visitors meet real farmers – the AgrarScouts. AgrarScouts are farmers who are committed to consumer dialogue. They like to inform and discuss current agricultural topics, report on their everyday life on the farm.
In addition, there is also the opportunity to participate in an exciting indoor rally at the AgrarScout stand (booth number 101). The FML offers school classes to register in advance for student tours via Messe Berlin. These are also taken over by the AgrarScouts. Information about the student tours can be found here: gruenewoche.de/de/besuchen/schuelerprogramm/
The war in Ukraine and its effects have shown us all the importance of a reliable supply of domestic food. At the same time, people want sustainability in the stable and in the field, says Lea Fließ, Managing Director, Forum Moderne Landwirtschaft. “We want to give exciting impressions of the field and the stable to touch on the ErlebnisBauernhof. Show how sustainably our food is produced today and tomorrow and show that sustainability and security of supply are not opposites, but are already being implemented today by farmers in Germany.”
So let yourself be surprised how farmers work on their farms today. Enjoy freshly baked delicacies from the show bakery and relax in the rest area on the ErlebnisBauernhof.
