Successful edition Seed meets Technology 2018
Growers, students, marketeers, CEOs and sales managers: they all attended the international ‘Seed meets Technology’ event. The fifth edition of this event, held this year from 25 to 27 September, was a great success. The event drew over 1,700 visitors, many of whom came from abroad.
This year’s edition was strengthened in many ways. An enhanced focus on communication and name recognisability, for example, resulted in many new participants from countries as far away as Israel and Finland. The diversity of visitors also resulted in outstanding attendance in terms of quality.
Three symposiums were organized on the following subjects: hydroponics, data processing (phenotyping) and seed treatment. The latter was organized jointly with Plantum and was very well-attended: the hall was packed to the rafters. René Huijsmans (Syngenta), Carole Desbois-Vimont (Limagrain) and Werner Pol (Ctgb) explained their vision on the subject of seed treatment in the future.
