Recap of Agritechnica 2011, world's largest indoor farm show

Agritechnica 2011 was viewed by 415,000 visitors, a record attendance number. The number of visitors was up 18% from figures posted for the 2009 show.

Managing director of Agritechnica exhibitions Jochen Kockler says the show highlights innovations. And more frequently, the innovations are found in electronics and sensor technology. A special "Smart Farming" section featured these technologies.

Agritechnica also showcases sustainable technology with two halls devoted to companies in this area.

The next Agritechnica will be held in November 2013.
