Made in Niedersachen for the world – agrotechnology

Rooted in its long farming tradition, Niedersachsen has grown into a leading state for agricultural technology.

Well known and well regarded

Niedersachsen-based agricultural vehicle and machinery manufacturers achieve high turnovers with a remarkable proportion going for export; their products are known and valued all over the world – the ideal setting for new manufacturing or supply enterprises looking to tap into Niedersachsen's strengths in this sector for their business growth.


  • 100+ countries supplied
  • 390,000 workers in the Agribusiness industry
  • 33 bn € turnover in the food industry
  • 22% of turnover from food and animal feed exports

With its strong farming traditions, Niedersachsen can draw on centuries of experience with agricultural technology. The smiths and craft trades of the 19th century created the basis for today's wide spectrum of highly specialised companies of international repute.

Companies like Grimme Landmaschinenfabrik, Kotte, Dammann, and Amazonen-Werke, with their soil tillage, vegetable and cereal technology and transportation machines, score successes all over the world and are regarded as leading innovators in their respective field.

Investors and enterprises benefit not only from the established provider community but also from close cooperation with research facilities and  leading international specialist exchange platforms. For example, every other year Hannover Exhibition Grounds welcome AGRITECHNICA, the world's largest trade fair for agricultural technology.
