Transatlantic Agricultural Dialogue

The Transatlantic Agricultural Dialogue is an exchange program for German and American farmers. Despite living in different countries and farming under different conditions and regulatory frameworks, farmers in America and Germany face surprisingly similar challenges, including public acceptance, regulations, farm succession and changing commodity prices.

The Transatlantic Agricultural Dialogue provides a platform for professional dialogue on a personal level. It allows farmers to understand international markets better, exchange practical ideas, and build lasting contacts and friendships in both countries.

How to get involved

The Transatlantic Agricultural Dialogue consists of farmer’s roundtable meetings in the US and a week-long guided tour to Germany.

Are you a farmer? You are invited to attend the farmer’s roundtables and participate in the study trips. The roundtables are typically free to attend. The study trips are subject to an application and program fee.

Do you represent an agricultural organization? Representatives of farming organizations are invited to become more formally involved.

“The Transatlantic Dialogue offered unprecedented mutual access to German and American agriculture at the highest levels. The conversations, understandings and relationships we developed over several days are critically important in today’s global agricultural market.”
