DLG-Feldtage (DLG Field Days) is a unique outdoor exhibition which has been held at different locations in Germany since 1988. It takes place in June every two years and provides a meeting point for crop production experts from around the world. The event attracts over 350 exhibitors from diverse fields ranging from crop production, crop breeding and crop protection to fertiliser production and farm equipment as well as consultancy and further services. Visitors will find a wide range of products, displays and machine demonstrations in the exhibition area, trial fields, outdoor showground and marquee. A 45-hectare outdoor area is reserved for live, hands-on demonstrations of the latest innovations. The unifying theme of all DLG-Feldtage is to give the audience a practical experience of cropping; an offer that is readily accepted by more than 23,000 trade visitors at each event, most of them farmers, contractors, traders and students. The farmers attracted to these events are major players and leading decision-makers in their industry. About 10% of the visitors are international, coming from some 30 different countries.
Geared to large-scale arable farming, DLG-Feldtage tend to attract industry professionals who farm more than 600 hectares on average, depending on the venue (such as when the exhibition was held in Bernburg in 2014).
Agricultural area in Germany totals around 16.7 million hectares, 12 million hectares of which is arable land. Around 275,000 of these farms are family-run businesses. Arable farmers generate annual net sales of 8.79 billion euros, producing crops worth 28 billion euros. The most common crop is winter wheat grown on 3.25 million hectares, followed by maize, winter rape and winter barley.
