Radio broadcast Jungle Talks and GreenTech
On ocasion of the GreenTech in Amsterdam, Jungle Talks will record, in close collaboration with Holland Horti Media, a special radio program and podcast on sustainability in horticulture and the future of food broadcasted by Paprika Tasty Radio. Unfortunately, it will not be broadcasted live at the Greentech, as announced earlier, due to technical inconveniences, but instead on Tuesday 5 October. Presenter Ed Smit and co-host Frederik Vossenaar, special envoy at the Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality discuss opportunities, new technologies and innovations with several guests.
By 2050, the earth will have 2 billion extra inhabitants. At the same time, major parts of the world will face droughts and water shortages, which will highly impact regional food security. We need to find an answer on how to feed the world without harming the planet. Greenhouses can play an important role in providing for this increasing demand for safe, healthy and sufficiently produced food.
Greenhouse acreage is steadily increasing, but there are not enough growers to operate them. This problem will only increase in the coming years. Can smart, autonomous, steering algorithms provide solid solutions? Not only in developed markets, but all over the world? And how do we communicate the power of technology and innovation to the consumer? Are they ready for this new era in food production? How do we (re)connect to society?
Presenter Ed Smit and co-host Frederik Vossenaar, special envoy at the Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality discuss opportunities, new technologies and innovations with Ronald Hoek, CEO of Blue Radix and Art van Rijn, CEO of Artechno.
This GreenTech special will be broadcasted on October 5, 16.00 hrs CET via www.paprikatastyradio.nl.
‘Jungle Talks at the GreenTech’ is powered by Holland Horti Media & Paprika Tasty Radio and supported by Netherlands Agricultural Network.
