Macfrut to take field demonstrations to expo center

Macfrut will take the field to Rimini Expo Center to showcase its technology. An area in the pavilions of the Rimini Expo Center will feature a real crop field with agricultural machinery in action.

“This true innovation is set to make Macfrut stand out among other fruit and vegetable trade fairs,” explains Renzo Piraccini, President of Cesena Fiera. “We will have an area equipped as in the countryside, where cutting-edge technology applied in fields, especially for horticulture (seeders, transplanters, harvesters, etc.), can be seen in action. Italy is a world leader in this sector and Macfrut is the perfect showcase to promote it.”

May 10-12, a test field will be set up in the pavilions covering an area of 35×20 meters and about 70 centimeters deep. This area, measuring more than 700 sq. m., will feature agricultural machinery with live machining demonstrations, as well as new drone technology.

It will be a “trade fair within a trade fair”, where the evolution of cutting-edge field technology can be tested first-hand in the presence of international buyers, according to Macfrut.
