International government-based and horticulture associations from around the world have confirmed to be a part of Horti ASIA 2017 to be held in Bangkok, Thailand, from 15-17 March 2017
While the world’s population is expected to reach nine billion in the coming decades, the demand for sustainable and safe food production will also increase exponentially. In this light, horticulture can offer fresh food and vegetables grown under controlled environment. It can practically eliminate usage of pesticides and herbicides, greatly reducing the amount of water needed to effectively grow more crops per square meter and address the shortage of useable land. “The future of horticulture looks very bright in the next three years,” said Peter Spaans, director of Van der Hoeven horticultural projects.
Horti ASIA exhibition aims to help develop horticulture business is by finding the best solution to problems. Organised under the theme ‘solutions for horticulture industry,’ the exhibition aims to be a powerful platform in pooling together horticulture experts from many countries, specialists from top companies and also relevant associations to share knowledge, provide the best solutions for marketing problems, give advice on new technologies and learn about appropriate innovations which will increase more productivity and save more investments for Asian farmers.

Also, participants will witness German Showcase under DLG special zone, which will present the latest innovation and technology to increase yields in horticulture production processes for fruit, flower and vegetable in the Asia-Pacific region.
