DLG announces Women in Ag Award 2024

The German Agriculture Society (DLG) in cooperation with the Belgian international “Women in Ag” magazine, offer an international award to women in agriculture. The deadline for submission is the 31st July 2024.

At EuroTier, which will take place in Hanover, Germany, from the 12th-15th November 2024, the Women in Ag Magazine and the DLG (German Agricultural Society) are to confer the international "Women in Ag Award" for the third time. The award recognises professional women in agriculture, including agriculture, agribusiness, education, technology and research. The deadline for applications is the 31st July 2024.

"The role of women in farming, agribusiness and agricultural sciences is changing world-wide. More and more women are shaping the future of agriculture either as managers of their own farms or in companies, research or in the teaching profession. More and more women are drivers of sustainable food production world-wide. More and more women are shaping the debate in agricultural as journalists, bloggers or influencers," says Freya von Czettritz, CEO, DLG Holding. "The Women in Ag Award honours this commitment and tells the stories behind these inspiring women. At EuroTier, we want to give this topic the attention it deserves," adds von Czettritz.

Criteria of the Women in Ag Award

"In just two years, the Women in Ag Award is already highly recognised in the industry – this is demonstrated by the high number of candidates, the impressive portraits of the winners and the great attention in the media and among the public," says Kim Schoukens, Editor-in-Chief of the Belgian digital Women in Ag Magazine. "At EuroTier 2024, we want to continue this success story with strong personalities from agriculture, agribusiness, education, technology and research. Any woman working in these agricultural sectors can be nominated. From female farmers who work in arable farming or animal husbandry to female agribusiness experts and engineers, to women who work in teaching, research and development or in the media. What all applicants have in common is that they show an outstanding commitment to global agriculture," says Schoukens, describing the criteria of the Women in Ag Award.

Women from the German and international agricultural sector can apply or be nominated until the 31st July 2024. The award-winners are selected by an international jury made up of representatives from agricultural practice, science, organisations and the media. The focus is on special achievements in the development of local, national and international agriculture.

The winners will be honoured at the award ceremony held at EuroTier on the 13th November 2024 in Hanover/Germany.
