After intense consultations with the exhibitors of CroAGRO and the Food and Healthy Living Fairs, the following conclusion has been jointly reached: it is necessary to postpone holding of these fairs in the period from 25 - 28 November 2021, given further reduction in the mobility of exhibitors and visitors due to the new epidemiological measures in force from 16 November 2021. We expect the fairs to be held in the first quarter of 2022, that is, as soon as more favorable conditions for exhibiting and visiting are created.
CroAGRO, the International Fair of Agriculture, Agricultural Equipment and Machinery returned to the Zagreb Fair Calendar of events last year after 15 years. It was held in parallel with the Food and Healthy Living Fairs.
A total of 460 exhibitors from 28 countries were presented in 9 pavilions of Zagreb Fair.
In partnership with Gospodarski list, Zagreb Fair set the highest standards and positioned this fair amongst the most significant events in the field of agriculture in the Republic of Croatia.
Already on the first day, one of the more expensive agricultural machines was sold. It was a Claas Lexion 6800 combine harvester from Eko-terra d.o.o., worth € 400,000.
There were also the Gastro show, where food was prepared according to Gospodarski list recipes, CROAGRO academy for young farmers called "It is good to be a farmer" for high school students, the 5th professional seminar on vegetable production in Croatia - Croatian vegetables, the 5th SirCro Fest, the Croatian festival of traditional cheese and numerous lectures.
The best farmers in Croatia were also chosen by the Croatian Agricultural Journalists Association. They were selected in 21 categories based on the results achieved this and last year.
An exhibition of autochthonous Croatian breeds of domestic animals was also set up and the Croatian tractor of the year chosen.
The best Croatian tractor was FENDT 942 VARIO Gen6, the best design belonged to VALTRA T234 tractor, and the best specialized tractor was Antonio Carraro Tony 10900sr.
In the evaluation of the expert jury composed of representatives of the Croatian Agency for Agriculture and Food, Faculty of Agriculture Zagreb, Croatian Fruit Growers Association and the Faculty of Food Technology and Biotechnology in Zagreb, Fuji was named the best apple variety, while Cripps Pink and Topaz took the second and the third place.
After the fair, we received a number of positive reactions and good impressions from satisfied exhibitors and visitors.
This year we are preparing an even better and richer exhibition and programme content of the fair under the slogan The best agriculture has to offer.
Competitions, expert lectures, exhibitions and many other events are waiting for you again, so do not miss the second edition of the CROAgro Fair.
We look forward to meeting you again from 3 - 6 December 2020 at Zagreb Fair.
