Between 17 and 19 March 2017, the 23rd International Fair of Agricultural Techniques AGROTECH and the accompanying exhibition LAS-EXPO were held in Kielce.

The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development assumed the honorary patronage over the fair.

This was one of the largest exhibition events in Poland and Europe devoted to agricultural technique. This year’s edition broke the earlier records of: the turnout – the exhibition was visited by 71250 guests, exhibition area – 11 halls and more than 63000 m2, the number of the exhibitors – 750 companies and institutions from twenty countries of the world. The visitors could see tractors, agricultural machines, fertilizers, seeds, feeds, livestock buildings, plant protection products and many other products necessary in a homestead.

The stall “Knowledge and innovation” distinguished itself out of many consulting units prepared by the most important trade institutions. Once again, it was organized by the Agricultural Advisory Centre as part of the Innovation Network in Agriculture and Rural Areas. On the area of more than 320 m2, the offer was presented by: the Institute of Natural Fibres and Medicinal Plants, the Institute of Agricultural and Food Biotechnology, the Plant Breeding and Acclimatization Institute, the Institute of Soil Science and Plant Cultivation, the Research Institute of Horticulture, the Institute of Technology and Life Sciences, the National Veterinary Research Institute and the Industrial Institute of Agricultural Engineering.
