Koppert innovation partner Delphy ISFC

‘A group of experts in soft fruit within reach’

Koppert Biological Systems produces sustainable solutions for the cultivation of food and ornamental crops. Together with growers and in cooperation with nature, we are committed to making agriculture and horticulture healthier, safer, more productive and more resilient. We achieve this by using natural enemies to fight pests, bumblebees for natural pollination and bio stimulants to strengthen crops, both above and below the ground. Restoring and protecting vital ecosystems in a natural way is the basis for healthy crops and a balanced environment. Add to this our high-quality know-how and advisory services, and you will understand why an increasing number of growers consider us to be a partner with whom they can realise their ambitions.

Innovation partner Delphy ISFC

An important basis for providing clients with good advice is ensuring that knowledge is continuously developed. Especially in soft fruit, Koppert likes to work with a partner who has a lot of knowledge and who can carry out independent research. By becoming an innovation partner of Delphy ISFC, Koppert has a good location available in the soft fruit region where the progress and results of the research can be shown to distributors and growers. Meetings can also be organised here. An important added value of the cooperation is that Koppert’s strategies can be tested in practice. The involvement in Delphy ISFC means that Koppert has a group of soft fruit experts within reach. New developments in the market, in strategy or of a technical nature can be shared at an early stage.

About Delphy ISFC

Delphy Innovative Soft Fruit Centre is the new hotspot of the international soft fruit sector. Delphy ISFC operates as an incubator for knowledge and innovation in soft fruit and also as the meeting point of the sector. In a unique way knowledge development and implementation are brought together on an international scale. Unique because of the connection with the sector and the cooperation with partners. Knowledge implementation is the second important factor. This is expressed through international events, knowledge days and other initiatives where research results are shared.

A special initiative to jointly drive innovation in the soft fruit sector are the ‘innovation partners’ of Delphy ISFC. They invest collectively in projects that contribute to a progressive soft fruit sector. The focus of the Delphy ISFC innovation partners is on themes like resilient cultivation, developing new cultivation strategies, optimising the propagation of soft fruit, cultivation under LED light and digitalisation.
