NovelFarm 2023, an exhibition focused on soilless market and vertical farming will take place from February 15th to 16th at the Pordenone Exhibition Center in Italy. The exhibition will highlight the importance of indoor farming in ensuring high-quality sustenance for a growing world population, as well as the benefits of soilless production such as water and fertilizer savings, the elimination of pesticides, increased free areas, and the preservation of biodiversity. The exhibition will also showcase the latest innovative technologies and experiences in the fields of soilless and vertical farming, including automation systems, cooperative robots, sensor technology, artificial intelligence for managing the growing environment, and new fertigation systems. In addition, the exhibition will also focus on 4th and 5th-range products, which are important for the Italian soilless market.
NovelFarm, the reference exhibition for the soilless market and vertical farming in southern Europe, will take place from February 15th to 16th at the Pordenone Exhibition Center in Italy. Indoor farming will be a major theme at the exhibition, as it is seen as one of the most advanced combinations of primary food production technologies that can ensure high-quality sustenance for the world’s population, which is expected to continue growing in the foreseeable future. Soilless production has numerous benefits, including water and fertilizer savings, eliminating the need for pesticides, increased free areas, and preserving biodiversity, which is often impacted by traditional “organic” crops.
The exhibition will provide attendees with the latest innovative technologies and experiences in the fields of soilless and vertical farming. Seed producers will showcase a variety of seeds that are particularly suitable for soilless growing, and research centers and farmers will present solutions for reconciling market needs, economic viability, and the full potential of controlling growth parameters. In terms of “hard technologies,” the focus will be on automation systems, cooperative robots, sensor technology, artificial intelligence for managing the growing environment, and new fertigation systems.
In addition to these technological advancements, NovelFarm 2023 will also highlight the importance of 4th and 5th-range products for the Italian soilless market. These products represent an important opportunity for growth in the industry. Overall, the exhibition aims to provide an ongoing update on the latest developments in soilless and vertical farming and to facilitate the exchange of knowledge and experiences among industry professionals.
