IPM Dubai started: tour to desert greenhouses

IPM Dubai is currently being held in the World Trade Center in Dubai. Prior to the expo, interested parties were able to visit greenhouses in the desert.

Yesterday, IPM got underway. The expo is held concurrently with the WOP Dubai trade show and Gulfood Manufacturing. This edition of IPM may not be the largest IPM ever held, but it is an expo that amazes when it comes to the extraordinary projects on display, including a hydroponic and organic nursery in the desert. Exhibitors see opportunities for projects in the Gulf Region, or meet customers visiting the expo.

Tour
On Saturday, a tour was held, which included a visit to the Desert Group Nursery. The nursery, situated in the desert, not only produces various plant varieties, it also functions as a research centre. There are Plant Protection, Plant Nutrition, Plant Biotechnology and Marketing Research departments.

Desert Group is also an important research company. Here, the possibilities for propagating banana trees on water are studied. Without a substrate, the trees may be exported.
 
 
The expo runs until Tuesday. On Thursday, we’ll be publishing a photo report on the expo.
