That was PotatoEurope 2010 – with lots of positive feedback for K+S KALI GmbH, too!
The PotatoEurope 2010 took place on 8-9 September at Bockerode manor, in Springe-Mittelrode near Hanover, Germany. The PotatoEurope was organised by the German agricultural association (DLG), together with the German potato industry society (UNIKA) and K+S KALI GmbH.
Great international interest in potatoes
This year, too, the PotatoEurope was a hotspot for potato-professionals from all over the world. A total of 8,200 visitors from 42 countries flocked to this flagship event of the potato industry. According to the DLG, every second visitor came from abroad, with the Netherlands, Russia, Czechia, Austria, France, Denmark, Spain and Poland heading the statistics. But experts from Asia, North and South America, and Africa also used the PotatoEurope 2010 to exchange information and for expert discussions. Topics included :
- new and time-tested potato varieties and seed potatoes,
- new technology for production and processing,
- practical issues involving management and trade,
- fertilisation and plant protection strategies.
The great number of international visitors is a clear indication of the potato’s potential for securing proper nutrition to a growing world population.
