Agricultural mechanisation, strategic cooperation between Italy and Serbia
During the Novi Sad agricultural fair, FederUnacoma president Alessandro Malavolti presented the 7th edition of Agrilevante, the great event for Mediterranean agriculture, to be held in Bari from 5 to 8 October. Delegates and buyers from Serbia are also expected in the Fiera del Levante pavilions.
Agrilevante, an international event
The participation of official foreign delegations from 35 countries, organised by Agenzia ICE and FederUnacoma, is confirmed. The programme for the presentation of the exhibition to the foreign press is in full swing: after the initiatives in Turkey, Morocco and Serbia, those in Greece and Algeria are already scheduled, while others are being planned in the target countries.
Agricultural machinery: market at risk pending the NRRP
Registration figures for the first quarter of the year indicate a decline for tractors, and a recovery for other types of machinery after the loss recorded in the first quarter of 2022. Overall, the market remains at a standstill, affected by the delay in the procedures for granting public funds. There is concern about the buying and selling of used machinery, which is growing dramatically and does not improve the technological level of Italian farms.
Agrilevante, the 2023 edition starts from Ciheam in Bari
During the press conference presenting the event, Ciheam director Maurizio Raeli stressed the strategic role of mechanisation for food safety. Bari's deputy mayor Di Sciascio highlighted the importance of the event for the entire city of Bari, while regional councillor Pentassuglia reiterated the importance of innovation for the renewal and evolution of agricultural economies. FederUnacoma president and director general Alessandro Malavolti and Simona Rapastella also spoke.
Mechanisation, growing demand in the Mediterranean despite critical issues
The agricultural economies of the region have extraordinary potential, particularly related to high value-added crops. However, demographic imbalances, anthropisation, land consumption and climate change may hold back development, especially in the countries of the 'southern shore'. FederUnacoma: agriculture and mechanisation essential for stabilising the area. The leadership of Italian manufacturers.
Agrilevante, the agricultural technology exhibition
The 2023 edition of Agrilevante, to be held at the Bari exhibition centre from 5 to 8 October, was presented at the Ciheam of Bari. The technical content of the exhibition is very high and the conference programme is extensive, devoted to agronomy, electronic and robotic technologies, as well as public financing for agriculture and policies for the development of the primary sector in the entire Mediterranean area.
Agrilevante, the great Mediterranean trade exhibition
From 5 to 8 October, the great event organised by FederUnacoma and dedicated to the agricultural supply chains of the Mediterranean area will be back on stage in Bari. New features of the 2023 edition include a large space for gardening and landscaping, and an exhibition area dedicated to robotics for agriculture, as well as several initiatives being planned. Simona Rapastella: "the fair talks about the crucial challenges of this important geographical area".
Tractors. Dynamic demand but delays hold back deliveries
Supply delays slowed tractor sales in Italy (-3%) in the first two months of the year. The increase in the value of exports in 2022 (+14.6%) and the growth of used machinery on the domestic market indicate that demand for agricultural machinery is still as lively abroad as in Italy. FederUnacoma: to strengthen the technological endowment of the Italian machinery fleet it is necessary to invest in the latest generation of mechanical equipment. The contribution of public subsidies is fundamental
Made in Italy: new strategies for agricultural machinery
The annual "Think Tank" of FederUnacoma, the association of agricultural machinery manufacturers, was held today at Rosciano Castle (Perugia). The speeches by Minister Adolfo Urso, Matteo Zoppas (ICE), Emanuele Di Faustino (Nomisma), Dario Fabbri (Domino) and Alessandro Malavolti (FederUnacoma) emphasised the central role of Italian agricultural machinery and new promotion strategies on world markets.
Gardening equipment: declining market in 2022
Unfavourable weather and rising prices are holding back the market for gardening and landscaping machinery and equipment, which closes the year with a 15.2% drop. Almost all types of equipment were in the negative. Purchases in the mid-level segment were penalised: the gap between high-end technologies and low-priced vehicles with lower quality requirements is growing.
Agrilevante 2023: the organisational machine is up and running
Registration opened this morning for exhibiting industries that will take part in the event in Bari from 5 to 8 October. Great expectations for an exhibition dedicated to technologies for agricultural supply chains typical of the Mediterranean area, and which aims to repeat the levels of public attendance and international prestige achieved in 2019, before the suspension due to the health emergency.
Agricultural machinery: the 2022 closing balance confirms the sector's resilience
Sales fell in last year's closing balance for all major types of agricultural machinery. The market downturn, which is partly technical after the boom in 2021, is also due to the well-known supply problems and high raw material prices. Demand for machinery, however, remains high, thanks to government incentives. Allocations for agricultural machinery under the NRRP are in the pipeline.
Agricultural robots, Italian manufacturers in the spotlight at FIRA in Toulouse
FederUnacoma, the Italian association of agricultural machinery manufacturers, will be attending as Gold Partner the seventh edition of FIRA, the event dedicated to robotic systems in agriculture, to be held in Toulouse from 7 to 9 February. Agricultural robotics, which is already booming today, will become increasingly central in the coming years. Highly automated systems provide an answer to the productivity and sustainability needs of the primary sector.
