The German Agricultural Society (Deutsche Landwirtschafts-Gesellschaft DLG), based in Frankfurt a. Main, Germany and the Institute of Farm Economics of the Johann Heinrich von Thünen Institute (TI), based in Braunschweig, Germany, commonly coordinate the agri benchmark project.
The DLG, based in Frankfurt, Germany, successfully bridges the gap between agricultural and food theory and practice. With over 17,000 German and international members, this growing organisation is fully independent, specialising in agricultural and food know-how, exhibitions, publishing and certified agricultural machinery quality and food testing. Serving the European and world interests at large, the society is one of the leading food and agricultural organisations in Europe.

The Johann Heinrich von Thünen Institute (TI) is one of four German federal research institutes under the auspices of the German Federal Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection (BMELV). The Thünen Institute was created on January 1, 2008 from the German Federal Research Centre for Fisheries, the German Federal Research Centre for Forestry and Forest Products and part of the German Federal Agricultural Research Centre (FAL). The agri benchmark project will be unaffected by this.
