Transversal format confirmed with mechanisation, zootechnics, vineyards and orchards, green chemistry, renewables, conventions and training
Verona, 3 August 2021. The 115th edition of Fieragricola, the biennial exhibition scheduled in Verona 26-29 January 2022, takes up the challenge of sustainability and
relaunches with two specific areas featuring high levels of innovation
: the digital agriculture exhibition and the agro-energy exhibition, thus expanding an exhibition offering that makes the
VeronaFiere international event even more transversal and in line with the objectives of ecological transition, reduction in waste and environmental emissions, food security and food safety.
The thematic areas of Fieragricola 2022 will therefore go beyond the consolidated scheme that sees agricultural mechanisation, animal husbandry, high added value production such as vineyards and
orchards, agropharmaceuticals, fertilisers, seeds and services for the primary sector together in the Verona Exhibition Centre, to explore the new frontiers of agriculture, which first and foremost
require a new cultural paradigm, as clarified by global climate policies, the European Green Deal, and the reform of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) 2021-2027, which will come into force on 1
January 2023.
Digital agriculture. From drones to sensors, from IoT solutions to systems for mapping land and crops, from tools for interconnecting machinery and agricultural equipment to management
software, the opportunities for agriculture are constantly evolving, with the sector worth around 540 million euros in Italy (2020 figure, +20% on 2019) and over 13.7 billion dollars worldwide.
The pace of growth and spread of new technologies is high, precisely because of the answers that digitalisation provides in terms of rational use of resources, the possibility of reducing emissions
(and meeting the 2050 zero emission targets), transparency in production processes and the possibility of certifying every step along the supply chain. The benefits of Agriculture 4.0 will also
have repercussions on employment
, due to the demand for specialised professional profiles able to interpret the big data collected by machines and precision farming tools.
Alongside the exhibition offering, Fieragricola will seek to guide visitors (farmers, contractors, agro-technicians, agricultural experts, agronomists and veterinary surgeons) in the choice of the
most suitable solutions for the various production models, also through meetings, conventions and in-depth analysis aimed at user training. The exhibition is organised in collaboration with Image
Line, leader in digital innovation in agriculture.
Agro-energy. The 115th edition of Fieragricola also turns the spotlight on energy from renewable agricultural sources, an increasingly essential corollary to primary activities both
as a source of multifunctional income and as a strategy supporting the circular economy and ecological transition.
In particular, Fieragricola will focus on two segments of agro-energy that over the years have adapted best to the needs of Italian agricultural companies: biogas and biomethane, an advanced
front in the valorisation of zootechnical and agricultural waste, and agro-voltaics, a solution recommended in the past also by the Georgofili Academy for the recovery of farmsteads and rural
NRP resources. In addition to the funds of the CAP (almost 50 billion euros allocated to Italy for the period 2021-2027), the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (NRP) also provides
resources for the green transition, digital transformation and agriculture, with particular attention to the circular economy and sustainable agriculture; renewable energy, hydrogen, the grid and
sustainable mobility in relation to the development of agro-voltaics and biomethane; land protection of water resources; tourism and culture 4.0; social infrastructure, families, communities and
the third sector.
The new vision of agriculture at Fieragricola. There are many goals that the agricultural sector will necessarily have to achieve in order to respond to a world population expected to
exceed 9 billion in 2050: increasing production, food safety, improving yields, reducing environmental impact, combating climate change, safeguarding water resources, combating abandonment of
rural areas and hydrogeological instability, production quality and profitability of agro-food production chains.
The 115th edition of Fieragricola will attempt to offer solutions, keys to understanding and innovative tools capable of tackling the changes underway, thanks to conventions, workshops and
debates organised with sector stakeholders, seeking to offer a wide-ranging vision without forgetting training and business aspects.
Safety and Green pass. In accordance with the law decree of 23 July 2021, access to the Exhibition Centre will require presentation of the Green Pass or a negative swab within the previous
48 hours. Veronafiere has also adopted a specific Safetybusiness protocol with advanced anti-covid prevention measures, including thermo-scanners at gates, access quotas, rapid swab point,
electronic tickets and sanitation of environments.
