“The INNO-VEG innovation network will focus on facilitating innovation by realising the value of crop sensing technology in the field vegetable and potato sectors. The network is free to join and we invite anyone with an interest in this area to get involved,” says network lead Cor Van Oers from Delphy.
Further networking events are planning in the UK, France, Belgium and the Netherlands over the next two years. In addition, the network will include a web-based ‘Innovation hub’ with members directory, project database and discussion forum.
“To help us focus the network activities over the next few years, we’ve set up an online survey to collect feedback from growers and other industry stakeholders” says ADAS project lead Lizzie Sagoo. “The survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete and we’d be really grateful for all feedback”.
