The 39th edition of the IPM Essen is on its second day, and sustainability is again a hot topic at the booths this year; varieties that are more resistant and that can be grown with less energy, less PGR's, shorter cultivation period, packaging material that is more environmentally friendly and so on. All kinds of sustainable solutions are on display.
As usual, FloralDaily and our colleagues of FloralDaily will be walking around capturing highlights, novelties, new solutions, and so on. On Monday, January 30, the photo report will be published, but below is already a small preview.
