Fruit and Vegetables at IPM ESSEN 2019

IPM ESSEN: 
		Green Allrounder Logo klein

This year's edition of the world's leading fair, IPM ESSEN, will again focus on fruit and vegetable cultivation to a greater extent.

Cover the entire world of fruit and vegetables with a brief glance! For example, the technology which is needed for the cultivation of ornamental plants can be utilised for vegetable and fruit plants, too. Exhibitors with products or services from the fields of fruit and vegetables will be identified by a specially developed logo. The booths of 74 companies in total will receive markings which will be easily visible to visitors.

A separate section in the exhibitor list will ensure rapid access to all the desired information.

Fruit and Vegetables as a Multifaceted Main Subject Area

At IPM ESSEN, it will be possible to find the technology necessary for vegetable and soft fruit cultivation: from greenhouse construction via greenhouses made of plastic film and their interior fittings as well as illumination, air conditioning and irrigation systems right up to husbandry machines, weather protection and insect-repelling nets as well as breeding pots and cultivation and transport trays. The range on offer will be rounded off by available information about everything to do with fertilisers and plant fortifiers as well as by devices for eliminating weeds. Furthermore, countless exhibitors will present new fruit, vegetable and herb varieties as well as seeds.

Fruit, Vegetables and Herbs Days

This new customer generation is increasingly bringing different requirements to the green sector. But how should the producers and the trade best serve this target group which is becoming ever more important? Answers to this will be given by experts in the Speakers' Corner of the IPM Discovery Centre at IPM ESSEN on the Fruit, Vegetables and Herbs Days on January 24 and 25, 2019.
