Our Minister of Agriculture, Julia Klöckner, is committed to a globally viewed food system and to the transfer of knowledge between different disciplines, beyond national borders. In her keynote speech she stressed the potential of digitisation for efficient agriculture.
We had the good fortune to participate in the Pioneers’ pitch and present the basic principles of SeedForward, as well as our ecological products as alternatives to chemically-synthetic substances in agriculture. It was particularly important for us to make it clear that we must take a holistic and forward-looking view of the agricultural system. Agricultural policy must extend beyond the legislative period in order to guarantee sustainable solutions. However, digitisation is not the only solution; agriculture must be considered systematically.
Besides us, start-ups like PEAT, Agrikaab Ltd and Mimika presented their ideas in the Pioneers’ Pitch. 700 guests from all over the world attended the event and ensured a lively exchange of knowledge.
