According to a report from AgriLand, Deere has extended its pause on attending trade shows and will not present at Agritechnica 2021, which is set to take place in Hanover, Germany, from Nov. 14-20, 2021.
Alejandro Sáyago, vice president, sales and marketing, John Deere Region 2, said, “Despite numerous controlling measures, such as business restrictions, lockdowns and event cancellations, the pandemic has not yet been sustainably brought under control. The future remains uncertain with virus mutations and the slow progress of vaccination. Due to the current Covid-19 circumstances and the uncertain future, John Deere does not see that today the safety of all attendees can be fulfilled.
“Within the coming months, [the] most important [thing] will be to get the pandemic under control. Hence John Deere will support the Medical University of Hanover, Germany, with €250,000 ($300,000) for their Covid-19 researches."
