Dr. h.c. Norbert Rauch’s delegation trip with Minister of Agriculture Thomas Schmidt

At the beginning of September, Dr. h.c. Norbert Rauch accompanied the Minister of Agriculture Thomas Schmidt on his five-day delegation trip through the United States of America. The delegation of representatives from our companies, universities and research institutes visited the states of Iowa and Illinois with the aim of building contacts with the American agricultural industry and working together intensively in the sectors of agricultural technology and vocational training.

“The discussions and visits in the USA were a total success. We were able to establish contacts with American companies. Together we want to use the opportunities provided by digitalisation in the agricultural industry. Through digitalisation, we can economise in a resource- and environmentally-friendly way and strengthen the competitiveness of our operations”, said Minister of State Schmidt.

Dr. h.c. Norbert Rauch from RAUCH Landmaschinenfabrik GmbH was very happy with the diverse range of information obtained about agriculture in Iowa and Illinois. The visit to the Farm Progress Show gave the members of the delegation an interesting insight into American agricultural technology. The discussions between the participants also proved to be particularly exciting and valuable. It resulted in a potential cooperation for the sustainable progress of the environmentally-friendly agricultural industry and agricultural technology in Saxony and Germany.
