International Mechanisation and Demonstration Strawberry fair (IMDS)

In 2022, the 12th edition of the International Mechanisation and Demonstration Strawberry fair for professional visitors will take place at the Research Centre Hoogstraten. The actual fair will take place on Saturday, 24 September 2022. During the exhibition there will be several demonstrations in the greenhouse and the field. In addition to mechanisation and demonstration, also other topics will be shown such as sustainable water use, integrated pest and disease control, and the digitization and automation of current strawberry cultivation. Furthermore, there will be guided tours organised by the research team to present the current research topics and shows the ongoing trials. This guided tour will focus on sustainable water use, autonomous mildew control with UV-C light, Mucor disease and alternative substrates. 

This year our fair is integrated in the 4th International Strawberry Congress (www.iscbelgium.com) organised by Coöperatie Hoogstraten. This congress will take place from 21 to 22 September in Antwerp (Flanders Meeting & Convention Center, right next to the central station). On Friday 23 September we will organise several fieldtrips (registration via ISC Belgium) for a national and international audience.
