GreenTech, a conference focussing on greenhouse and precision horticulture, gave its highest honours on June 14 in Amsterdam. 

 

Jury chair Liselotte de Vries (TU Delft AgTech Institute) says: “This year we received submissions with a wide variety, which is exciting to see after the past challenging years. The jury looked at biological-, production- and digitization technologies. A selection of these were nominated for the Innovation and Concept Awards."

 

On the winners: “The Concept and Innovation Award winners won based on their product and also based on their professional presentations. Both presented the jury with a high level of details, based on facts and figures and a very concrete insight into their product, company and business plans. We encourage future submissions to follow this level of professionalism.” 

 

The GreenTech Concept Award goes to BERRY by Organifarms, Germany. It’s a harvesting robot for greenhouse-grown strawberries automating the detection of position, ripeness, and quality of the fruit. The machine places the berries directly into punnets where they are weighed and ready for sale.

 

The GreenTech Innovation Award goes to Micromus-System by Biobest, Belgium. The brown lacewing Micromus angulatus is a generalist predator of which both adults and larvae feed on all common aphid species found in protected crops.
