AGRICULTURAL BIOTECHNOLOGY

scaling innovation in AgBiotech

and Seed Applications

 

Description:

Agricultural biotechnology encompasses a variety of methods, including traditional breeding and gene editing, that alter living organisms or parts of them in order to create better and healthier plants or produce microbes for specific agricultural uses. Modern agriculture is no longer conceivable without such methods and gives farmers tools to make output more cost-effective and manageable.
So what are the future challenges? Where do we need new agricultural inputs and technology to make agriculture more sustainable and efficient? Is it organic plant boosters, seed treatments, or genome editing that will define the future?

 

Speakers:

  • Christopher Fender, Strategic Technology Business Development Manager at KWS
  • Alberto Acedo Becares, Co-founder of Biome Makers
  • Martin Kollmar, CEO of GOENOMICS
  • Martin Spitznagel, CEO of Bind-X

CARBON FARMING

challenge mapping

and solution showcase

Description:

Agriculture's response to climate change is carbon farming. Simply put, the idea is to remove excess carbon from the atmosphere, where it contributes to global warming, and store it in soil, where it helps plants thrive. The concept is simple enough; the execution, however, is not. Carbon farming is increasingly being incorporated into agricultural practice but still a very small portion of the world's farmland uses this method.
So how can carbon farming really be successfully integrated into tomorrow's crop production and what technologies are needed to achieve this? What are the benefits of carbon farming and how can we efficiently measure its success?

 

Speakers:

  • Rolf Härdter, Head of Agronomy and Advisory at K+S
  • Michal SlotaSales & Business Development Specialist at Arkop 
  • Suvrajit Saha, CTO SmartCloudFarming
  • Michael Sernatinger, International Sales Representative at Carbonauten
