“As a first mover in innovation, we are meeting the challenge to grow more food with fewer resources head-on.”

“Meeting key stakeholders in Africa’s agricultural advancement was a great opportunity for me, and as a business we are committed to Africa and will be available to add towards initiatives that ensure that agriculture is done differently, in order to contribute towards economic growth and job creation,” says Richenhagen. 

Richenhagen is scheduled to travel to Zambia to tour the AGCO Future Farm facility in Lusaka.
