In addition to agricultural equipment, the visitors visited stands with seeds, fodder, equipment for livestock buildings and stands with plant protection products and fertilizers.
The lecture prepared by the Lublin Chamber of Agriculture on VAT in agriculture was very popular among the visitors. "Nearly thirty thousand visitors confirm our belief that farmers are looking for knowledge about modern solutions and want to invest in the development of their farms" - says Maciej Wituch, Project Director at Targi Lublin.
