Focus on breeding research and many farm activities at Green week 2015

The aim of this year’s BMEL special show is to present innovative projects from the fields of breeding and breeding research. Sustainable and resource-conserving production will be demonstrated using the example of ornamental plants that were optimised by a targeted combination of innovative greenhouse technology and agronomic breeding

At the 80th International Green Week in Berlin, the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL) will once again be represented by its own Special Show in Hall 23a of the Berlin Fairground. Under the title “A Place for Ideas to Grow”, the BMEL will this year be focusing on current developments in the fields of breeding and breeding research. The special show also offers visitors the opportunity to find out more about important links in the value-added chains in the fields of food, agriculture and horticulture.

 

The sustainable use of natural resources is the main instrument for an efficient agricultural sector based on good farming practice. The aim of this year’s BMEL special show is to present innovative projects from the fields of breeding and breeding research. Sustainable and resource-conserving production will be demonstrated using the example of ornamental plants that were optimised by a targeted combination of innovative greenhouse technology and agronomic breeding. In the plant sector, breeding and breeding research stand for the development of new crop varieties that are disease-resistant and adapted to changed climatic conditions. In BMEL Hall 23a, the focus is on new resilient ornamental plants, new apple varieties and also conservation varieties as a basis for conserving genetic resources.

 

Bees remain an irreplaceable part of the food-production chain, which means that they are of vital environmental and economic importance. The special show therefore provides information on the opportunities open to the beekeeping sector, on the risks posed to bees by man and the environment and on safeguarding and promoting beekeeping.
