Transatlantic Agricultural Dialogue
The Transatlantic Agricultural Dialogue is an exchange program for German and American farmers. The program provides platforms for professional dialogue and allows farmers to better understand international markets, exchange practical ideas, and form international contacts and friendships.
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.

We offer turnkey trip packages to Germany for US agricultural organizations. We will plan your trip, connect you with local farmers and associations, translate for you, and more.

These trips are designed for current and future agricultural decision makers. This includes members and board members from ag commodity groups and other farming associations, as well as agricultural leadership students whose curriculum includes a study trip abroad. Let us help you plan the trip of a lifetime.

Digitalization and automation have become an essential part of many workplaces, farms included. But how will digitalization impact future farming practices? What does this mean for business, the environment and our societies? Discuss with us at the AgriTech Symposium this September in Colorado.
Transatlantic Capstone Forum, September 23, 2019, Washington, DC
The German Embassy in Washington, DC, will host us for our Capstone Forum, where we'll recap our past programs and bring together the transatlantic knowledge we've collected over the past four years.
This includes presentations on agricultural technology and the current state of agricultural trade between the US and Germany.
How to Get Involved
Are you looking to position your organization more internationally? Have you ever wondered about the reasons behind European trade regulations on agricultural products? Do you want to know how farmers work and live in Germany?
The Transatlantic Agricultural Dialogue is a convenient and affordable way to supply your organization and farmers with first-hand market intelligence. We will co-host a round table at your location and take care of getting the right foreign farming professionals there to get the transatlantic exchange started.
Subsequently, you get the chance to take your members on a week-long study trip abroad for hands-on knowledge exchange with local farmers, regulators and agribusinesses.
Please contact us to discuss topics for the exchange you are particularly interested in, costs, and the time frame you’d like to become involved in.
