Vegetal World

This event is a new concept for the agricultural production sector. Consumers and markets are increasingly demanding, this is why agriculture cannot stay away from the new management models, must look forward and show its identity characteristics: quality, food safety and respect for the environment. Vegetal World is an Innovation and Agricultural Production Trade fair, that aims to professionalize and stimulate the sector, a project by and for professionals in this sector.

Koppert has wanted to participate in the Vegetal World since its first edition, because of the comprehensive spirit of this fair and the high relevance of all the issues related with plant health. Koppert will have an active involvement as an exhibiting company and will show some of our biological solutions related to the fair. You can find our Spanish subsidiary, Koppert España S.L. at Pavilion N2-P2, stand B-23.

This event offers businesses the opportunity to present themselves to apiculture specialists and related fields, representatives of NGOs and commercial businesses, and scientists and researchers from all over the world.

Because of the scarcity of honeybees, Koppert will be presenting bumblebees as a good supplement for pollinating a number of different crops. Koppert's pollination solutions such as Natupol and Tripol are highly suited to being combined with honeybees.
