At this year's seminar of IAAS Hohenheim in May we travelled to the beautiful region of the Allgäu. With great people from Croatia, Bulgaria, Serbia, Ghana, Austria and Grece we got a broad impression of the regional agriculture, whether it was rather traditional or automatizes dairy farming, orcharding, beer brewing or tractor technologies by Fendt.

"Youth engagement for developing global farming based on local resource utilization"
For the first time in the history of the International Association of students in Agricultural and related Sciences (IAAS) Germany the two existing committees of Bonn and Hohenheim organized a joint event. The seminar with the topic “How Green is German Agriculture?” was hosted at the beginning of May and supported by our great sponsors. It took us from Stuttgart in the southern part of Germany to Bonn in the western part and we were glad to host 30 students from Spain, Switzerland, Germany, Greece, UK, Russia, Georgia, Bangladesh and the US.
Due to the fact that not only the European Union is changing its agricultural policy, also IAAS Internationals topic of the year is „Greening Agricultural Policy“ IAAS Germany decided to show a possible implementation of the new agriculture policy at the example of Germany’s multifunctional agriculture sector. To do that we visited different farms and companies working in and close with the primary sector to understand how they are dealing with the ongoing and upcoming changes.
