Business Day at Wageningen University & Research


On 26 September 2019, the Business Day will be held at Wageningen Campus. Developments in technology and new innovations will be key.

Rick van de Zedde and Benny van der Fels will attend to speak about phenotyping/EMPHASIS-PREP and NPEC.

Phenotyping: High-tech measurements on plants and animals and large-scale accumulation of data on plant- and animal performance in their natural environments to understand, model and optimise our food production systems.

In live demonstrations our experts will show vehicles, robots and drones that capture data. You will learn the current state-of-the-art and how your business can benefit from these developments in this booming domain.

Key topics are: smart agriculture, the new phenotyping research centre, various experiments: climate room, greenhouse and field-based breeding, post-harvest shelf life measurements, and animal health, welfare, behaviour.
