Agricultural technology innovation and cutting-edge solutions for the entire range of domestic agriculture - this is offered only by Agraria in Wels. At over 75,000 m² of exhibition space, over 490 companies will present their entire range of services this year. From tillage, animal farming, grassland technology and animal breeding to forest-based industries, manufacturers and importers will be presenting the latest technology. Agraria is the first address for farmers to optimise their operations and to shape the future of their agriculture.

Agraria is always state of the art and engages with current issues in agriculture in a diverse and top class framework program. In more than 120 events on the 4 days, associations and exhibitors will provide specialised information on current topics in the industry.

During the four days of the exhibition, some social events will also be held. From the Federal state days through to the young farmers‘ party at Gustino marquee, there are numerous ways of entertainment to get off work and management tasks.

For a comfortable journey to the exhibition, use the free parking places with shuttle bus to the exhibition and the free ÖBB train shuttle service between the Wels central station and the stop Wels Messe.

Dear fair visitors!

A sustainable and small-scale agriculture and forestry, sparing the use of natural resources, characterises our vital rural areas and forms the basis for our high quality of life. Austria‘s family farms are the backbone of an efficient and comprehensive agriculture - they are the future model for further development in the agricultural sector. That is why I pay special attention to further develop the family-run structures and their economic viability in the agricultural policies.

With rural development, we set out our development priorities, and that too in clear distinction to the European „mainstream“. We promote innovation, environmental and animal protection, diversification, marketing, mountain areas and regional development. Not only our domestic farmers benefit from these compensations for services but they also strengthen the upstream and downstream sectors of the economy and thus the rural areas in their entirety. The Austrian agricultural sector is well-known for long-term thinking and responsible economic management since several years. As the leading agri - cultural fair Agraria offers the ideal general conditions to exchange the latest developments and to bring the innovative potential of domestic enterprises in the spotlight. In this sense, I wish the event great success!
