Spotlight Shines Bright in Italy on the Latest Vineyard Equipment

Perhaps nowhere has the move to becoming more environmentally aware been on display than at EIMA, officially the “International Agricultural and Gardening Machinery Exhibition,” held in Bologna, Italy in mid-November.


Virtually all the exhibitors at the show, one of the largest of its kind in Europe, highlighted how their products were kind to the environment, whether lowering pesticide use, saving water, or anything else widely considered “green.”

The 2022 edition of EIMA had record attendance, with 327,100 visitors. International Fruit Tree Association attendees were hardly alone among foreign visitors. According to the trade show’s organizer, FederUnacoma, nearly 20% of those who attended, 57,300 total, came from abroad during the five-day exhibition.

FederUnacoma President Alessandro Malavolti says the attendance demonstrates that EIMA has an important mission for years to come.

“The success of EIMA confirms the growing interest in new-generation agricultural technologies to meet the food needs of a global population that will grow by almost a billion within the next 10 years,” he says, “and confirms how in every region of the world, work is being done to innovate cultivation methods, seeking to make scientific and sustainable use of water resources and soil fertility.”
