Large Farm Management 2013: Know-how for large agricultural holdings

International conference in Kiev, Ukraine, 19-20 September 2013

More than 500 participants are anticipated to attend the international conference ‘Large Farm Management: Organization and Strategy’ in Kiev, Ukraine, on 19 and 20 September. The event will be held for the fourth time and is deemed in CIS states and in Europe as the leading forum for discussing issues and problems of large farm management.

The conference is hosted by the Association Ukrainian Agribusiness Club (UCAB) with support of IAMO and the Federation of German Industries' Committee on Eastern European Economic Relations. Interested parties are invited to register.

High-profile keynote speakers will introduce four panel discussions which will deal with the following main topics:

• Global development trends in agricultural productivity: What is the importance of farm size?
• Productivity and know-how: How to achieve maximum yields?
• Human resources: Successful qualified staff recruitment and retention schemes
• Effective governance structures for modern agribusiness: Priorities and challenges

A field trip is scheduled for the second conference day. Participants will visit the Industrial Milk Company, an agricultural holding with properties of 140 000 hectares of land and 3 000 dairy cows. In addition, the conference provides opportunities of meeting and discussing with many senior executives and representatives of farm businesses, food producers, government and research institutions.

Detailed information about the conference program, conference fees and registration formalities are provided in the program ( and in the conference website at:

About IAMO
The Leibniz Institute of Agricultural Development in Central and Eastern Europe (IAMO) analyses economic, social and political processes of change in the agricultural and food sector, and in rural areas. The geographic focus covers the enlarging EU, transition regions of Central, Eastern and South Eastern Europe, as well as Central and Eastern Asia. IAMO is making a contribution towards enhancing understanding of institutional, structural and technological changes. Moreover, IAMO is studying the resulting impacts on the agricultural and food sector as well as the living conditions of rural populations. The outcomes of our work are used to derive and analyse strategies and options for enterprises, agricultural markets and politics. Since its foundation in 1994, IAMO has been part of the Leibniz Association, a German community of independent research institutes.
