Presentation of agricultural machinery and resources for agricultural production, appreciation and demonstration of farm animals, lectures, free consultations with specialists, the opportunity to taste a variety of dishes and the premiere of the eDWIN advisory platform – all this is waiting for people who will appear on Saturday and Sunday 4-5 June at the fair in Sielinek, organized by the Agricultural Advisory Center Wielkopolska in Poznań.
The twenty-eighth Wielkopolska Agricultural Fair Sielinko 2022 is the largest event organized by the Wielkopolska Agricultural Advisory Center in Pozna, accompanied by the third regional exhibition of breeding stock and field days.
– We are happy to meet again in Sielinek at the next edition of the fair. This is an event that is an excellent opportunity to learn about new developments in agriculture, see the most modern agricultural machinery or see how the varieties of crops from many different growers are present on the WODR demonstration plots.
– says Jacek Sommerfeld, director of the Agricultural Advisory Center Wielkopolska in Poznań.
A rich program of the fair in Sielinek
Although the fair in Sielinek returned a year ago after a break due to the coronavirus pandemic, last year’s edition was still limited. This time, however, it will be completely different and the fair is in full shape again.
The visitors can see collections of many arable crops (more than 300 plots) and power plants, modern agricultural machinery and agricultural inputs. This year, WODR is presenting demonstration plots of spring and winter grain, winter rapeseed and pulses. WODR advisors and seed company representatives will be on hand for visitors to discuss individual plant varieties and species.
Plant lovers will have the chance to see the herb flower garden
Plant lovers will have the chance to see the herb and flower garden run by WODR employees. In addition, there are tastings of beef, pork and poultry dishes, competitions for families and attractions for children and young people.
A wide range of companies active in the agricultural sector and for agriculture will be presented during the fair. You can visit stands with agricultural implements, stands of animal feed, fertilizer and agricultural production companies.
Concentrating many offers in one place allows visitors to compare the quality and prices of products and gives them the opportunity to use different technologies and solutions on their farm. In addition, as every year, a fair is also planned, where you can buy garden furniture, garden tools, flower seedlings, trees and ornamental shrubs.
– Every year we want visitors to be able to take advantage of the widest possible offer during the fair in Sielinek. We want our guests to be able to get all the information they are interested in during the fair and learn about the possibilities that the Wielkopolska Agricultural Advice Center offers.
– says Jacek Sommerfeld.
Free consultations at the fair in Sielinek
In addition, interested parties can benefit from free consultations with specialists and representatives of agricultural institutions such as: the National Center for Agricultural Support, the Agency for Restructuring and Modernization of Agriculture, the Agricultural Social Insurance Fund, the Regional Chemical and Agricultural Service Station, the Agricultural Chamber of Greater Poland , the state inspectorate for crop protection and seed production.
On the other hand, at the WODR booth you can get to know the Electronic Service Platform or order a treatment of maize protection against European maize borer as part of the Poldrony service.
The fair in Sielinek full of beautiful animals
At this year’s fair in Sielinek there is also an exhibition and a show of farm animals, which are very popular with visitors. Visitors will have the chance to see beef cattle, dairy cattle, horses, rabbits, sheep, and poultry.
Traditionally, during the fair the valuation of animals takes place, while on Saturday the highlight is the selection and presentation of champions and super champions of heifers and cows of dairy and beef breeds. The trophies and prizes for breeders will be awarded on Sunday.
The world premiere of the eDWIN application at the fair in Sielinek
The exhibition in Sielinek will also see the premiere of the eDWIN advisory platform, which will support farmers in their daily work. Four electronic services will be available as part of the eDWIN advisory platform. Two of them will be available in June.
For farmers, the main service will be “Virtual Farm”, where farmers will have access to a virtual map of their field. In addition, farmers receive information about threats in the field, pests, weather changes or advice about the application dates of crop protection products via a special application. In addition, the application simplifies and facilitates contact with the agricultural adviser WODR.
The second service to be launched in June on the eDWIN platform is “Meteorological Data Sharing”. Thanks to this, farmers can access current and archived data from meteorological stations assigned to the eDWIN platform.
The other two services, “Product Traceability” and “Risk Reporting”, will be available at a later date. The official premiere of the eDWIN advisory platform will take place during the National Days of the Sacred Fields in 2022 on June 11-13.
– The eDWIN platform is unique in the scale of the whole country. It is a tool that will certainly facilitate farmers’ work and have a positive impact on crop quality
– explains Jacek Sommerfeld.
Targi w Sielinek – an event at the National Field Days
The fair in Sielinek is an accompanying event for the National Days of Poświętne 2022. It is the largest agricultural event organized by agricultural advisory centers under the honorary patronage of the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development.
In a year’s time, however, the National Field Days will be organized by the Wielkopolska Agricultural Advisory Center and held in Sielinek.
