SPECIALTY CROPS MECHANIZATION, INDUSTRY TRAINING & EDUCATION
The seventh Agrievolution Summit will take place this year in Spain, on the 1st and 2nd of October. It promises to follow in the footsteps of previous summits in bringing into the arena some of the biggest issues of the day relative to the world of agriculture and the subsequent development of mechanisation and innovation as it looks to sustainably feed an ever-growing world population.
This year’s summit will highlight some of the incredible opportunities held within the sector for Specialty Crops such as Olive Oil, Wine, Vegetables and Stone Fruits and will open up a focus on the Spanish agricultural market. It will look at the role of mechanisation on product quality within the specialty crops market, its relationship to yield and premium and the structure of the supply and demand chain. The summit will also raise the debate on Education and Training, in particular looking at the recruitment challenge that world agriculture and the agricultural equipment sector faces; it will consider the role of women in the mechanisation of agriculture and take a look at the new era of a requirement for digital skills. Industry experts including top executives from equipment manufacturing companies share their perspective. Keep an eye out for speakers to be confirmed.
On the second day, delegates will visit a farm demo / field day in Valencia. Visitors will see an on field working demonstration of mechanisation techniques and the adaptation of machines for different types of specialty crops. The demo day will highlight:
• Mechanisation of Intensive and super-intensive crops
• Customized mechanization
