Save the date - Final symposium INNO-VEG

Home Event Detail


Ieperseweg 87, Roeselare, Belgium

6 September 2022 at Inagro, Belgium

Event Category: Industry event

Event Date: 06 September 2022

To improve their practices, farmers can experiment with new management strategies on their own fields. Crop sensing with drones or other crop sensing platforms, provides a powerful tool to collect reliable data from these farmer led experiments. The Interreg 2 Seas -project INNO-VEG supports this innovation, especially in the field vegetable and potato sectors, by providing guidelines and advice. These are based on our experiences and data collected within the project.

In this
final project event we will offer a bird's eye view of the project outputs, lessons learned and future perspectives. Meet the INNO-VEG network in person and join us for a networking lunch.
