Smart farming workshop and networking event at Agribex

Event Category: Conference

Event Date: 10 December 2021

Are you planning on visiting Agribex? Are you interested in precision farming techniques? If so, you can’t miss this event. On December 10th we are running an information session about precision farming applications with a networking lunch next to the Agribex fair. We'll start with two plenary sessions about on farm experimentation by vegetable farmers. Thereafter, we'll show you how leek growers can use site-specific fertilization.  We will bring you the stories of ten farmers who already use the technique. After lunch you will receive a free ticket with the option of a guided visit to the Agribex fair.
