Prof. Luis Marquez Delgado

This morning we received the sad news that Prof. Luis Marquez Delgado - Member  of the “Club of Bologna” – passed away.

Luis attended all CoB meetings since the first one in 1989. First as MC Member, and then as FM, he has been always very active in supporting and driving CoB activities as well as in disseminating them on the specialized journals (AgroTécnica and AgriWorld) of which he was the Technical Director. He was passionate and a great expert in agricultural machines and mechanization with a deep knowledge of these subjects especially in South America countries.

We will never forget his happiness, friendliness and willingness to all colleagues.

We will always remember him. May his soul rest in peace.
