On Tuesday April 26, the organisation of PotatoEurope 2022 Germany invited these representatives, local media and media partner PotatoWorld magazine to come to the event location, Rittergut Bockerode near Hanover, for a kick-off meeting to give the preparations for the event a boost.

Attracting potato professionals
‘The PotatoEurope trade fair, with trial fields focusing on potato varieties, an extensive machine demonstration programme and several so-called specials with different themes, will once again attract potato professionals from around Europe on September 7th and 8th, 2022’, said the Project Manager of PotatoEurope Germany, Wilfried Wolf (DLG), looking forward to the event during his welcome speech.

Fifth edition at Rittergut Bockerode
‘Since the first edition in Germany in 2006, it is now the fifth time PotatoEurope Germany will be held at Rittergut Bockerode. We are looking forward to being the location for the potato industry’s leading meeting place again this year,’ stated Friedrich Henkels, owner and farm manager of Rittergut Bockerode, inviting the guests to take a look around the event location, where the potatoes for the Machinery Demonstrations were recently planted under great circumstances.
