We proudly announce the Delphy ISFC Field Day. This new event will be organized in an unique way, literally in the middle of soft fruit crops and research. This results in a strong connection between knowledge development and knowledge distribution. The event is organized in a practical setting, close to the soft fruit industry.
The Field Day takes place on Thursday 9th of June 2022 at Delphy ISFC, Kreuzelweg 3b, Horst (The Netherlands).
The program will contain three key activities:
In June, there are multiple ongoing trials at the Delphy Innovative Soft Fruit Centre (Delphy ISFC) regarding all soft fruit crops. These trials include the greenhouse departments, the tabletops and rain shelters outdoors. Tours will be given several times of the day. During these tours, participants can visit the trials and departments and discuss within the group.
Multiple seminars will be organized in the conference area. These seminars will be themed as follows:
1. Sustainable soft fruit cultivation
2. Blueberry cultivation
3. High-tech cropping & artificial lighting
More info on the topics and presentations can be found in the program (see below, or available at downloads).
Simultaneously to the presentations we will have an exhibition. At the exhibition approximately 50 soft fruit related companies and organizations present their newest developments, innovations and services.
