Fendt supported the German Farmers’ Day 2011 in Koblenz as a main sponsor and presented itself as a strong partner for farming. Under the motto “We create values” the German Farmers’ Association called attention to the services farming renders to society.
“We are the backbone of the rural areas and maintain our cultivated landscape,” stated Gerd Sonnleitner, President of the German Farmers’ Association clearly. “Germany is an agricultural country,” said Chancellor Angela Merkel, who was a guest on the main day of the German Farmers’ Day and thanked farmers for their work.
The future challenges, however, must not be underestimated. “The problem of feeding a continually growing world population while agricultural areas are decreasing can only be solved through mechanization and powerful technology,” said Hubertus Mühlhäuser, Senior Vice President of AGCO. So, it fits well that Fendt was represented at the German Farmers’ Day. The Fendt EuroTour, which is currently making the rounds in Europe and presenting the new 700 Vario, also stopped in Koblenz.
How do you think we can best meet the challenges of feeding the world’s growing population?
