(DLG). At EuroTier, which will take place in Hanover, Germany, 12-15 November 2024, the international Women in Ag Magazine and the DLG (German Agricultural Society) will confer the international "Women in Ag Award" for the third time. The award recognizes professional women in agriculture, including agriculture, agribusiness, education, technology and research. The deadline for applications is 31 July 2024.

"The role of women in farming, agribusiness and agricultural sciences is changing worldwide. More and more women are shaping the future of agriculture either as managers of their own farms or in companies, research or in the teaching profession. More and more women are drivers of sustainable food production worldwide. More and more women are shaping the debate in agriculture as journalists, bloggers or influencers," says Freya von Czettritz, CEO, of DLG Holding. "The Women in Ag Award honors this commitment and tells the stories behind these inspiring women. At EuroTier, we want to give this topic the attention it deserves," adds von Czettritz.

"In just two years, the Women in Ag Award is already highly recognized in the industry - this is demonstrated by the high number of candidates, the impressive portraits of the winners, and the great attention in the media and among the public," says Kim Schoukens, Editor-in-Chief of the digital Women in Ag Magazine.

"At EuroTier 2024, we want to continue this success story with strong personalities from agriculture, agribusiness, education, technology, and research. Any woman working in these agricultural sectors can be nominated. From female farmers who work in arable farming or animal husbandry, to female agribusiness experts and engineers, to women who work in teaching, research, and development or in the media. What all applicants have in common is that they show an outstanding commitment to global agriculture," says Schoukens, describing the criteria of the Women in Ag Award.

Women from the German and international agricultural sectors can apply or be nominated until 31 July 2024. The award winners are selected by an international jury made up of representatives from agricultural practice, science, organizations, and the media.
