Theodor Leeb honoured at international conference AgEng-Land.TECHNIK

On 22nd November 2022 a commemorative event took place in Berlin on the occasion of the international conference AgEng-Land.TECHNIK.

Among other awardees of the agricultural engineering sector, Theodor Leeb, too, was awarded the Max-Eyth-Medal to honour his many years of service with regard to the development of innovative and trendsetting technologies and systems in the sector of state-of-the-art plant protection. With the HORSCH LEEB developments he significantly increased precision and efficiency in the crop care sector and, thus, contributed to a significantly improved environmental sustainability of the methods.

The chairman of the VDI department Max-Eyth-Society Agricultural Engineering (VDI-MEG), Dr. Markus Demmel, presented the awardees with the medals and the documents and honoured their excelling achievements in the sector of agricultural engineering.


The Max-Eyth-Medal was founded in 1950 by the Max-Eyth-Society for Agricultural Engineering. It honours excelling individual achievements that represent a historical part of agricultural engineering developments. In 1995, within the context of the merger of the Max-Eyth-Society for Agricultural Engineering and the VDI-Society Agricultural engineering, the Max-Eyth-Medal was included in a VDI tribute ceremony.
