A Swedish pavilion will be featured at Agritechnica – the world’s largest trade fair for crop cultivation equipment and technology. The pavilion is organized by Agtech 2030 in collaboration with Business Sweden. The last time Sweden had a pavilion there was in 2015, in cooperation with Linköping University, Elmia, SSAB, and others.
The Sweden pavilion is organized at Agritechnica, which takes place from November 12 to 18 in Hanover, Germany. This year’s theme on Green Productivity addresses the challenges and opportunities of future-oriented agricultural technology.
Team Sweden is represented by Agtech 2030 and Business Sweden, leading innovative Swedish agtech companies, the Swedish Board of Agriculture, Handelsbanken, and Elmia. At the pavilion, examples of Swedish innovations and technologies will be showcased that contribute to the development of sustainable agriculture.

Hasta Gård is an innovation hub where several projects are ongoing. One of these projects is called Leandry, and it involves a world-unique method for drying grain without the need for any heat. The project is led by the inventor Kurt Hansson in collaboration between Lund University, Linköping University, and the company Hasta Agtech and Hasta Gård. EIP Agri provides the funding. Kurt’s idea is to utilize a unique material called metal organic framework (MOF), invented by Professor Omar M. Yaghi and his team at Berkeley University in the USA. Kurt has successfully established a collaboration with the company Water Harvesting, which is a spin-off from Berkeley. The project is part of a larger framework at Hasta Gård.
Together with Lund University, Linköping University, T-maps, and HS Östergötland, Hushållningssällskapet have developed an AI-powered analysis of soil analysis management.
