SIVAL increases floor space for crop industry in 2014

18.11.2013
SIVAL, a leading European trade show for the crop-production sector, will be held from 14 to 16 January 2014 at the Angers Exhibition Ground (Western France). The addition of 1,000m² of surface area at this year’s event will allow approximately 600 exhibitors to showcase a comprehensive range of equipment, agricultural supplies and services to more than 20,000 visitors.

Organized by Angers Expo Congrès for the past 25 years, SIVAL takes place in Angers (North-Western France), at the heart of the leading crop-production region. The SIVAL trade show will be held from 14 to 16 January 2014 as part of Plants Week 2014, which brings together VégéConso, VEGEPOLYS Symposium and new event ITEIPMAI/ASTREDHOR.

As a landmark European trade show, SIVAL has embarked upon international expansion and, in cooperation with its partner UBIFRANCE, has invited foreign delegations of purchasers, sector managers, operating managers etc. – predominantly from Algeria, Italy, Poland, Russia, Spain and the United Kingdom – to take part in the 2014 event.

SIVAL has also recently signed an international business agreement via the European Enterprise Network (EEN). Accordingly, exhibitors and visitors alike may now set up meetings with potential qualified partners before the trade show.

Each year, the SIVAL Organising Committee punctuates the three days of the trade show with symposiums and technical discussions on a range of subjects. Some of the themes on the agenda for the 2014 event include ‘Management of the vine's hydric regime’ (Euroviti Symposium), ‘Stimulation of the plant's defences in vegetable crops. Results of the Defileg project’ (CTIFL Légumes technical discussion), ‘Competition distortions and extra-regulatory requirements in the European and international trade of Fruits and Vegetables’ (Coop de France Conference) and ‘The keys to a successful organic arboriculture: innovative solutions and search for alternatives’ (Regional Chamber of Agriculture).

The high point of the trade show will be the VEGEPOLYS Symposium entitled ‘The protection of tomorrow's pip-fruit orchard: French and international avenues of action for pre- and post-harvest’, which will take place on the afternoon of Tuesday 14 January.

SIVAL is the only French trade show that caters to the entire crop-production industry, with 600 exhibitors (10% of them from outside France), representing 1,500 brands. As the leading event for fruit and vegetable production, particularly with regard to the representation of seed producers, plant suppliers and nursery owners, SIVAL welcomes more than 20,000 professionals each year.

Im Focus: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
