The Netherlands was this year’s Partner Country of SIVAL, the French plant production industry’s annual trade show held in the second week of January in Angers, France. The Dutch were strongly represented with Wageningen University & Research using the fair to reveal a radical new vision for Dutch agriculture.

The Dutch embassy in Paris, with the support of Wageningen University, Delphy (the Dutch knowledge sharing organisation for cultivators around the world), LTO (agricultural sector body) and BO Akkerbouw (arable crops sector body) brought together key industry players for a conference entitled ‘Science-based solutions for sustainable cropping systems in the Netherlands.’

The objective of this event was to exchange experiences, challenges and best practices that the Netherlands and France are facing in their transition to sustainable, resilient, nature-friendly agriculture which restores rather than undermines biodiversity, eliminates avoidable waste and which makes a significant contribution to a zero-carbon world.
