On 1st July FRUCOM attended the Interra farm visit organized by Syngenta. On the farm the visitors were shown first-hand how farmers are trying to achieve more sustainable productive agriculture and good environmental stewardship in practice. The farm tour included new information on precision farming technologies and their zero impact ambition, including new techniques on boom sprayers for more precise pesticide application.
Other topics included:
• Regenerative agriculture principles and implementation
• Biodiversity measures including pollinator (flower strips) and buffer strips
• Soil management and soil conservation as a foundation of sustainable food and feed production
• Appropriate use of seeds, fertilizers, and crop protection, including biostimulants and biocontrols
We wish to thank Syngenta and Interra farm for the invitation.
