For one day at the end of August, approx. 40 exhibitors came together to share the latest cover crop techniques and demonstrate techniques in the field to visiting potato and horticultural producers in Borgeby.
The visitors saw how weed robots work in the field, different cover crops and how to control irrigation needs using sensor technology. We were there and informed about Oper8 and how to reduce or replace the need for chemical pesticides and what experiences are available in the rest of Europe.
It was a very nice event with over 500 participants.
-“The weather was not the best, but all the field walks could still be carried out in a good way,” says Thomas Börjesson, project leader for Oper8.
