Field trials and lectures
The lecture hall only has space for a limited number of people. If you want to join one of the lectures, make sure to get there in good time.
The lectures will be held in the lecture hall or at the field trials (see lecture program). At the field trials, you can meet advisers (NLR) and researchers (NIBIO) throughout the day, and you can see different trials:
– New and different potato varieties
– Ethylene treatment of potatoes
– Fertilization systems and measurements of nitrogen.
– Virus and aphids. Talk to researchers and learn about the project.
– Aerial stem rot in the variety Asterix
The farm robot Thorvald will also be demonstrated throughout the day.
