WALK IN SEMINARS

INNOVATION & THE FUTURE OF THE POTATO (hall 6)

Binnen- en buitenlandse sprekers delen via korte ‘walk in’ presentaties van 20 minuten hun kennis, ervaringen en visie over thema’s rond innovatie in de aardappelketen. Een ideale plek om een blik op de toekomst te krijgen via experten uit de branche.
Dit programma is gratis voor de beursbezoekers, zonder inschrijving vooraf. Hiermee wenst de organisatie de volledige keten te informeren, verder te professionaliseren en aanzetten om samen te werken aan een innovatieve en duurzame toekomst.

Enkele thema’s die aan bod komen: CIPC en alternatieve kiemremming, Alternaria, Smart digital farming, remote sensing, crispr techniek, aanpak van droogte, Brexit en de vetzuursamenstelling in friet enz.

Innovation, engine for a sustainable potato growing Driving economical, ecological and social responsibility (in het Engels)

12:30 – hall 6

Veerle Mommaerts - Food Chain Manager & Marc Sneyders, Sustainable Operations Manager - BAYER

Consumers desire all year round access to high quality and tasty potatoes at a fair price. Up till now farmers together with their suppliers and the potato processors are successful to meet these consumer expectations. Nonetheless, today the toolbox to protect and grow potatoes in a sustainable way is decreasing due to the strict regulatory frame work in Europe and the ever increasing restrictions set by the food value chain to fulfil the growing demands of their consumers.

Up till now farmers together with their suppliers and the potato processors are successful to meet these consumer expectations. Nonetheless, today the toolbox to protect and grow potatoes in a sustainable way is decreasing due to the strict regulatory frame work in Europe and the ever increasing restrictions set by the food value chain to fulfil the growing demands of their consumers. New solutions and approaches are needed to coop with this changing market environment. More than ever a close cooperation between the suppliers, the farmers and the potato processors is a must. As a global leader of crop protection solutions, seeds and technology, Bayer is committed to invest in the agriculture of tomorrow through innovation. We strongly believe in a holistic approach: complementary crop solutions including chemical and biological crop protection products that are safely applied by farmers, combined with new technologies for an optimized, targeted application (e.g. digital solutions) to further minimize environmental impact and coop with the limited available farmland. Beyond this, we encourage knowledge sharing through partnerships with all actors along the food value chain to create value from farmer to consumer and as such build together a sustainable and consumer centric potato production.     hall 6DD/MM/YYYY

Smart digital Farming in potato farming: unlocking the potential of drone based hyperspectral imaging (in het Engels)

14:00 – hall 6

Ruben Van De Vijver, Researcher - ILVO

In the last years, ILVO, in cooperation with its partners and the innovative business network has focused on unlocking the enormous potential of smart digital farming. The early detection of Alternaria solani in potato fields using hyperspectral imaging, is one of the specific topics which ILVO investigates. The challenge is to realize drone based alternaria detection, followed by smart digital mapping of the pathogen and thus execute precise, adjusted treatment. To allow this mapping, ILVO starts imaging work from a close range and high resolution perspective. This required building a semi-automated hyperspectral imaging robot. In 2017, low altitude drone flights were done on trial fields to acquire high quality imagery. The first – promising - data were collected. Come and see our presentation with results and forecasts of further possibilities and innovations.



 

Aardappel CRISP(s)R

16:30 – hall 6

René Custers, Regulatory & responsible research manager, VIB

Chips heten in het Engels crisps, maar het is vooral CRISPR dat in de aardappelveredeling opgang maakt. CRISPR is een techniek waarmee doelgericht en heel precies kleine wijzigingen in het erfelijk materiaal van een organisme kunnen worden aangebracht. In deze presentatie worden de voordelen van deze nieuwe technologie toegelicht en wordt een overzicht gegeven van welke eigenschappen met behulp van deze technologie in aardappel worden geintroduceerd.
