Activate the best practice in full screen

Über die Best Practice,

With this agricultural event a new virtual path will be taken. Farmers, consultants and co. did not meet on the trial fields of SKW Piesteritz but virtually by means of PCs, laptops or tablets.

Get in touch with exhibitors

After registration, visitors had the opportunity to choose different options to get in touch with other visitors or exhibitors. First of all, the visitor embarks on a tour of the fields, which can hardly be distinguished from reality. There you can easily get into conversation with exhibitors and be inspired by the latest trends in fertilisation, crop protection, seeds and machinery.

Live technical presentations

It is also possible to create an avatar and enter into virtual networking. When you speak face-to-face you hear yourself at normal volume. If one of the avatars moves a little to the side, the conversation volume is dimmed. Afterwards, there will be the opportunity to listen to live specialist presentations or the latest ideas from agricultural bloggers.
