SIVAL to focus plant sector on water management in January 2013

29.11.2012
SIVAL, the plant-production trade show of reference in Europe, will take place from 15 to 17 January 2013 at the Centre de Congrès et du Parc des Expositions d'Angers (Angers' Exhibition Centre), in western France.

The international trade fair is expected to host 600 exhibitors and attract 20,000 visitors to its symposiums, conferences and workshops, where the main topic discussed will be water management.

Over the past 25 years, SIVAL has become the event of reference for the key plant sectors, including vegetable farming, fruit farming, wine growing, cider growing and seed production. The trade show is the only event of its kind in Europe for the market-gardening and vegetable sectors and, therefore, is set to continue asserting its international standing in January 2013.

From 15 to 17 January, next year, approximately 600 exhibitors will display equipment and techniques devoted to plant production at the Exhibition Centre in Angers (western France). SIVAL will take place as part of Plants Week 2013, during which Angers will play host to a range of events in the plant industry between 14 and 20 January 2013.

While sustainable farming has previously taken centre stage at SIVAL events, water management will be in the spotlight across the conferences, symposiums and workshops at SIVAL 2013.

Water has become a key issue in farming, as it simultaneously involves economic, environmental and social issues. The trade show will tackle such crucial topics as reducing waste, preserving resources, integrating plant production within the water cycle, and preserving the social image of farming with regard to water.

For the past 25 years, SIVAL has sought to anticipate trends. SIVAL 2013 will bring attention to innovations showcased by its exhibitors, while fostering dialogue about technological progress in the plant sector. Innovations will also be highlighted through the SIVAL D'OR competition and the Agriculture Opportunities Forum, which will reward the best innovations in equipment, products and services on display at SIVAL 2013.

Speeches and meetings organised by VEGEPOLYS, the cluster of hi-tech excellence for the plant industry, will also take place during SIVAL 2013. The VEGEPOLYS Symposium will take place on 15 January in the Maine Hall at 4.00pm. This conference will explore developments in international R&D in future plant varieties, regulation strategies in water provision, and ways of organising farming to optimise water management.

Additionally, the VEGEPOLYS Roundtable will be held on 16 January in the Maine Hall at 2.00pm. This round table will focus on innovative solutions that can optimise water management in farming, with the use of certain technologies and tools.

As a key trade show for the sector, SIVAL has a major part to play in raising awareness of the VEGEPOLYS plant-sector cluster of excellence beyond France's borders. Accordingly, SIVAL will use the 2013 trade fair to assert its European and international standing.

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
