About the fair

Elmia Agriculture is the business arena that creates the conditions for a strong Swedish agricultural industry. A sustainable and profitable industry with growth. An industry with room for both a great love of farming and a curiosity about innovative ways forward in a competitive and ever-more digital world.

How can digital technology, robotics and sensors strengthen Swedish farming? At the fair we shed light on this issue from several aspects to show you the solutions that exist today but above all to find development opportunities for the industry.

At Elmia Agriculture products and ideas meet the market, joint ventures begin and new expertise gains firm footing on the journey towards an ever-smarter farming industry.
