The Feldtage Stage is located in the trial plot at stand VC43, which offers a wide range of insights into the current topics of the co-organizers, specialist partners and exhibitors. Panel discussions on topics relating to the value chain, from primary production to processing and trade, the future of crop protection and organic farming will take place at the Plaza Stage, trial plot stand VG15.

At this year's Feldtage event, the DLG is also once again offering a unique crop comparison platform to view eight alternative crops in demo plots and to exchange ideas with experienced practitioners. Every day from 13:00 to 14:00, interested parties will be able to meet and discuss possible alternatives for crop diversification.

Focus on organic farming

Another key topic at the DLG Feldtage 2024 will be organic farming. In various exhibition and event formats, farmers will be able to discuss the latest developments and innovations in organic farming with representatives of the organic value chain. Clover grass, organic cereals and legumes will take center stage at the ‘Organic Farming’ venue and demo areas. Every day on the hour between 10:00 and 16:00, pop-up talks will take place at stand VA21 at the organic farming “meeting point”. Experts will be demonstrating their tips for growing ‘classic’ crops such as wheat, spelt, malting barley, maize and sugar beet as well as alternative crops such as perennial wheat, field beans, peas, soya, chickpeas, lentils, hemp, millet, mustard, legume mixtures and mixtures such as winter triticale and winter peas. The focus will also be on soil cultivation.

Discussion rounds on the prospects for organic farming and organic value chains are planned at the DLG Plaza. On 12 June, the ‘Organic Farming’ meeting point will host an organic lunch.
