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: Nuclear Pores Captured on Film

Using an ultra fast-scanning atomic force microscope, a team of researchers from the University of Basel has filmed “living” nuclear pore complexes at work for the first time. Nuclear pores are molecular machines that control the traffic entering or exiting the cell nucleus. In their article published in Nature Nanotechnology, the researchers explain how the passage of unwanted molecules is prevented by rapidly moving molecular “tentacles” inside the pore.

Using high-speed AFM, Roderick Lim, Argovia Professor at the Biozentrum and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute of the University of Basel, has not only directly...

Im Focus: 2+1 is Not Always 3 - In the microworld unity is not always strength

If a person pushes a broken-down car alone, there is a certain effect. If another person helps, the result is the sum of their efforts. If two micro-particles are pushing another microparticle, however, the resulting effect may not necessarily be the sum their efforts. A recent study published in Nature Communications, measured this odd effect that scientists call “many body.”

In the microscopic world, where the modern miniaturized machines at the new frontiers of technology operate, as long as we are in the presence of two...

Im Focus: Tiny microbots that can clean up water

Researchers from the Max Planck Institute Stuttgart have developed self-propelled tiny ‘microbots’ that can remove lead or organic pollution from contaminated water.

Working with colleagues in Barcelona and Singapore, Samuel Sánchez’s group used graphene oxide to make their microscale motors, which are able to adsorb lead...

Im Focus: ORNL researchers discover new state of water molecule

Neutron scattering and computational modeling have revealed unique and unexpected behavior of water molecules under extreme confinement that is unmatched by any known gas, liquid or solid states.

In a paper published in Physical Review Letters, researchers at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory describe a new tunneling state of...
