There were eight contributed oral presentations sessions: 1. New pathogens and shifts in pathogenicity; 2. Toxic metabolites of pathogens; 3. Pathogen identification, detection and monitoring; 4. Genomics, proteomics and bioinformatics; 5. Diseases of trees in forests and recreation sites; 6. Plant disease management; 7. Plant pathogens in soil, air, and water and 8. Plant disease resistance. A special session in the Wieliczka Salt Mine, with a lecture on biological monitoring in the treatment salt chambers of the Wieliczka Salt Mine Health Resort, concluded with an amazing conference dinner, in the hall about 125 meters below the ground level, with the floors, ceiling and walls, made up by salt rock.

http://www.blackseagrain.net/novosti/more-than-20-000-farmers-expected-to-visit-dlg-feldtage-2014-in-germany

17.06.2014
DLG-Feldtage 2014 will show the latest farm machinery, crop protection, seeds and fertilizers in EU.

DLG-Feldtage 2014 is starting today in Germany. The event for agriculture and farm machinery will continue till 19-th of June. DLG-Feldtage 2014 will take place on the grounds of the International Crop Production Center (IPZ) in Bernburg-Strenzfeld (Saxony-Anhalt, Germany).

A total of 360 companies from the plant breeding sector and the fertilizer and plant protection agent industries as well as associations and institutions from 20 countries will be offering an attractive information programme which is unique in this form in Germany, dealing with all aspects of modern plant production.

“The number of exhibitors has reached a new high,” says DLG-Feldtage Project Manager Andreas Steul. “The figure is around 12 percent higher than two years ago.” He also welcomes the sharp increase in the number of international exhibitors. “This year, we will be able to welcome 70 international exhibitors compared with 42 in 2012. This means that DLG-Feldtage 2014 is more international than ever,” explains Steul. DLG is expecting over 20,000 farmers and agricultural experts from all over Germany and the surrounding countries to visit this top plant production event. The event venue is open for visitors from 9.00 h to 18.00 h on each of the three event days. A day ticket costs EUR 21.

DLG-Feldtage is considered to be the definitive innovation platform for modern plant production in Germany. The event centres on demonstrations of different varieties by plant breeding companies. Tried-and-tested and new varieties as well as seed of all market-relevant crop plants will be shown in the field. In addition, numerous companies, organizations and institutions will present further individual elements of plant production, for example fertilizing, plant protection and various cultivation techniques. An extensive range of products and services in the Tent Hall and on other Campus stands on the grass around the trial field guarantee a comprehensive and in this form unique information programme for visitors to DLG-Feldtage 2014. The event is a major support for farmers setting up their farms ready for the future so that they can meet the considerable challenges of sustainable production.

The extensive expert programme at DLG-Feldtage 2014 is rounded off with machinery demonstrations on every day of the event, the now-traditional European cropping comparisons for rape and wheat as well as information centres offered with partners from the academic community, consultancy services and industry on fertilizer quality, drones and remote sensor systems in agriculture as well as theme centres for topical issues in plant breeding, seed dressing and plant protection. A further highlight will be the International Field Robot Event which will take place as part of DLG-Feldtage 2014. In this competition, autonomous field robots developed by student teams from all over Europe will be competing against each other in various tasks.
