Review of the Latest Digital Talk

Due to new regulations important pesticides like Paraquat and Glyphosate are intended to be banned.

“Farmers are urgently looking for alternatives” said Dr. Klaus Erdle of the DLG Competence Center
Agriculture, Germany.

The global importance of the topic was proven by listeners from Southeast Asia, Africa, Europe, North and South America, who participated in the 1st Digital Talks on October 14th.

Together with additional organizations Dr. Nagavajara Bedinghaus, Executive Director, Thai Agricultural Innovation Trade Association (TAITA), is supporting the government of Thailand “in bringing in the latest technology of crop protection in Thailand and to train the farmers to use it correctly and responsibly”.

At the same time “it is still important to ban very high risk pesticides that are difficult to manage on farm level” stated Dr. Schreinemachers – Lead Scientist of the World Vegetable Center.

As in Germany the discussion on banning Glyphosate is still pending “farmers switch to mechanical weed control” and at the same time “companies are developing a variety of new tools” for a more integrated pest management explained Dr. Rebecka Duecker, Institute of Plant Pathology and Crop Protection Division, University of Goettingen.

“Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is not as easy as using chemical pesticides. However, it is worthwhile and has solved the problems of adverse effects of pesticides” summarized Dr. Nuansri Tayaputch, Expert
Panel on Chemical Review Committee.

AGRITECHNICA ASIA and Horti ASIA postponed until May 2021

Frankfurt – Bangkok,
August 17, 2020

New exhibition dates: 27th – 29th May 2021 – International trade fairs will offer a comprehensive exhibition and accompanying technical programme, covering the current topics of agricultural and horticultural solutions for the Asian markets 

(DLG). DLG International and VNU Asia Pacific are postponing AGRITECHNICA ASIA and Horti ASIA, which were scheduled to take place at BITEC, Bangkok, in October 2020. The uncertain travel entry regulations for Thailand have led organisers to the conclusion that it will not be possible to organise AGRITECHNICA ASIA and Horti ASIA in a form that is appropriate for such leading international trade fairs for exhibitors and visitors this year. The new dates for the exhibitions are 27th to 29th May 2021.

This decision to postpone AGRITECHNICA ASIA and Horti ASIA has been taken in close coordination with the partners, exhibitors and visitors of both trade fairs.

“Our decision to postpone both of the trade fairs was not taken lightly. In view of the continuing uncertainty surrounding the overall international travel situation and uncertain entry regulations for Thailand in the context of the coronavirus pandemic, however, we cannot foresee that it will be possible to conduct AGRITECHNICA ASIA and Horti ASIA in the usual form that is appropriate for exhibitors and visitors. The international nature of both exhibitions is precisely what makes the events an important international meeting point for experts and decision-makers,” says Bernd Koch, Managing Director of DLG International.

“We are convinced that postponing AGRITECHNICA ASIA and Horti ASIA until May 2021 will enhance the reputation of both events, as leading international trade fairs for the Asian markets and will further ensure optimal planning and preparation for exhibitors and visitors alike. The decision was taken after extensive consultation with our key stakeholders with the end result being that the large majority preferred to postpone the exhibitions to May 2021,” adds Heiko M. Stutzinger, Managing Director of VNU Asia Pacific. 

AGRITECHNICA ASIA & Horti ASIA – Digital Connect

In order to bridge the time until May, the organisers will offer a series of online sessions and product pitches starting from October 14th. Manufacturers, buyers and agricultural experts will be invited to experience and get connected with exhibitors via this new interactive online platform `AGRITECHNICA ASIA & Horti ASIA – Digital Connect´.
