ExpoAgro is the most important open-air agroindustrial exhibition in Argentina. It is organized by Exponenciar S.A, with Clarín and La Nación as shareholders, the leading newspapers in Argentina. It is held once a year, for four days, 225 km far from Buenos Aires, in San Nicolás, in the heart of Argentina, so-called “pampas”, the most productive and highly potential region of the country.
Thousands of visitors from Argentina and the world participate in this mega agribusiness meeting, where the latest technology in agricultural machinery is demonstrated in real conditions for contractors, producers and visitors in general.
In addition, ExpoAgro displays the latest technologies in seeds, phytosanitary, livestock and services for the sector.
It is a meeting where all the players in the agribusiness world can update and analyze the most important issues of the agribusiness agenda in a professional business environment. During four days, buyers, sellers, service companies and institutions, and international business rounds make ExpoAgro the most expected exhibition of the year.
Facts and Figures 2023
● over 100,000 visitors
● 600 exhibitors
● 500,000 square meters of exhibition
● 1,200 accredited speakers and press members
With an estimated agricultural area of 155 million hectares and an average annual production of 140 million tons of grain and oilseeds, Argentina’s agriculture could mathematically feed 400 million people. This is almost ten times the population of the country. Argentina thus plays a vital role in securing the world’s food supply.
Animal husbandry also plays an important role. With around 53 million cattle and an average consumption of around 50 kg of beef per person yearly, beef is an integral part of Argentina’s food culture. Beef is an important economic factor – and Argentina is one of the world’s leading beef nations, accounting for about 5% of global production.
According to GTAI, the “La Niña” weather phenomenon has been affecting Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay harvests since 2019. In principle, more extreme weather conditions are to be expected in the future. For this reason, farms need to focus more on water use – either because there is a lack of water or because the risk of flooding is increasing. Also critical is the need for soil protection and the preservation of biodiversity. As a result, plant varieties and technologies adapted to these new conditions must be found.
In the future, there will be an increasing need for technologies, machines and equipment for the more efficient use of available resources – e.g. water, fertilizers or herbicides. Digitalisation is also to be driven forward more intensively. Argentina is a pioneer in the use of satellites as well as the digital control and monitoring of harvesting and seeding machines.
