Inhouse Farming - Feed & Food Show
Part of AGRITECHNICA: 12 - 18 November 2023, Hanover
Pioneering new ways of farm & food
Controlled Environment Agriculture – global food security through new agricultural production systems is one of the central tasks of the future. "Inhouse Farming - Feed & Food Show" is the DLG's new platform for the agricultural and food systems of the future. Closely networked with agricultural practice, it offers technical information, perspectives, innovations and business - from feed to food.
High Value Crops
High-value crops (HVC) are agricultural products that have a higher market value compared to conventional crops. This is usually due to the fact that they are only cultivated in limited quantities or that they are suitable for specific purposes or markets because of their unique characteristics and properties.
Examples of HVC include special varieties of fruit and vegetables such as exotic varieties, herbs or rare varieties that command a higher price due to their unique taste, their colour or their nutritional value. Another important HVC category is medicinal plants and herbs that are used in the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries.
The technologies that are used in HVC production vary depending on the plant species and the cultivation system. HVC such as herbs, spices and lettuces are often cultivated in hydroponics and aquaponics, for instance, as these systems reduce the need for water and fertilisers and enable cultivation in limited spaces.
One other example of the technology used in HVC production is vertical farming, which enables plants to be stacked above one another in multiple tiers in order to maximise the production area. Plants such as strawberries, tomatoes or cucumbers can be cultivated with a higher production rate and better quality in such systems.
