As international travel restrictions to Thailand and the region ease further, from 25 to 27 May
2022, the agricultural and horticultural machinery community for Asia is awaited - in-person - at the
AGRITECHNICA ASIA & HORTI ASIA trade fair in Bangkok, Thailand. Guided by sustainability-led
smart farming, the trade fair will welcome 300 brands from 26 countries, who offer hand-picked solutions
for this region. The event also delivers professional knowledge and networking through its conference
program and practical features like vertical farming, cannabis cultivation and smart farming.
Live demonstrations of drones performing precision tasks within an exhibition hall are planned within the
new Thailand Smart Farming Pavilion, initiated and hosted by the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives
(MOAC). The trade fair takes place at BITEC exhibition grounds with a wide range of machinery displays
applicable for the region.
Smart Farming is one of the integrated solutions for the sustainable Agri-Food System. Integrated solutions
need integrated actions from policies, business and the farmers. Precision Agriculture needs to monitor the
changes and apply appropriate technologies at the right place, at the right time and the right rate.
Agritechnica Asia is the place to explore your “right” technology and services that are needed. Dr. Vanida
Khumnirdpetch, Director of the Bureau of Foreign Agricultural Affairs of the Ministry of Agriculture and
Partner country: Vietnam
For the first time, the organizers of the trade fair, DLG (German Agricultural Society), and VNU Asia
Pacific, have launched a partner country scheme, which aims to offer insights into attractive market
opportunities of Vietnam, the country selected this year. Vietnam’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural
Development (MARD) will be sending experts and will also host ‘AGRITECHNICA ASIA Live’, an
outdoor event for live machinery demonstrations on the fields, to be held in Can Tho Province, Vietnam,
24-26 August 2022.
“Asia is a strategic region for the company where Maschio Gaspardo invested with two production plants in
China and India. We continue to be present at AGRITECHNICA ASIA, both as partner and exhibitor,
because of the wide audience of the trade fair, which goes well beyond Thailand. We look forward to
presenting to the customers of this region innovations such as precision planters, soil tillage and much
more”, explained Mr. Diego Ranzato, Sales Area Manager APAC, Maschio Gaspardo.
