Conservation agriculture And Modern mechanical technologies For better control and removal of unnecessary weeds. Digital farming The latest frontiers of technology applied toPrecision farming To preserve the environment, help farmers and ensure crop quality. New Technologies Assisted Evolution (TEA) And Gene editing To investigate the potential of biotechnology as a critical tool for the agri-food sector. Glyphosate and related plant protection products To control weeds that compete with crops.
with file New Agriculture: The Challenge of Sustainability, created by the Gedi Group in collaboration with Bayer, the aim is to analyze all these strategic issues for the future of the agricultural industry from every angle with the contribution of scientists, doctors, economists, agronomists and entrepreneurs. But not only. Thanks to the testimonials of these certified experts, we will have the opportunity to know and understand the role of the key players involved in the authorization processes and assess the risks related to the use of Crop protection products to human health.
The purpose is to succeed by entering into the advantages of some key aspects of a businessInternational Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) Based onEuropean Food Safety Authority (EFSA): From the mechanism of assessing the carcinogenic potential of various physical and chemical agents to describing food risk assessment procedures, with particular attention to describing the concept of food safety and European and Italian reference models. From here, we will try to clarify the real or supposed effects on people’s health and the environment of glyphosate, the most widely used and well-known herbicide in the world, in light ofImminent decision from the European Commission which will have to establish, once and for all, whether or not to ban it from Europe. The decision that will arrive by the end of the year, after obtaining European Food Safety Authority assessmentsexpected for July.
Finally, the file will trace the history of parasites, pathogens and weeds that have posed a threat to agricultural systems and human health in the past with the aim of analyzing the path of innovation that, thanks to chemistry and the development of modern technologies, allowed agricultural engineering to evolve and ensure levels of production, diversity and food safety that had not been achieved before.
