DLG announces Women in Ag Award 2023
The role of women in agriculture, in the agribusiness and in the agricultural sciences is changing worldwide. An increasing number of women are shaping the future of agriculture as managers on their own farms or in companies, research or education. More and more women are the initiators and catalysts of sustainable food production around the globe and are often shaping agricultural dialogue as journalists, bloggers or influencers. The Women in Ag Awards pay tribute to this commitment and tell the stories behind these inspiring women.
The international award is jointly presented by the “Women in Ag”-Magazine, in Merchtem, Belgium, and the German Agriculture Society (DLG), Frankfurt/Main, Germany. Following its successful premiere at EuroTier 2022, this year’s award ceremony will be taking place at AGRITECHNICA in November, in the Hanover Fair grounds.
