For thousands of years, plant breeding has concentrated on annual plant cultures. The cultivation of corn, wheat and rice spread all over the world. Everywhere the rhythm of agriculture developed in the same way, sowing begins in spring and the harvest takes place in autumn. However, this is not the rhythm dictated by nature. The majority of wild plants are perennial, they are responsible for a functioning ecosystem and with their root system and biomass they provide stability and diversity in nature. Perennial plants are therefore the focus of science and agriculture.

The food market of the future is decentralised and functions as a digital network that brings consumers and producers closer together again, as the "point of production" moves ever closer to the "point of consumption". At the same time, new digital instruments allow modern forms of cooperation.

The panel on alternative proteins included Marcus Keitzer (PHW) and Fabio Ziemßen (BALPro). 2019 hsa been a very exciting year for all those working in the field of alternative proteins, Marcus Keitzer stated at the Farm & Food 2020 in Berlin. "We are dealing with a new generation of products that appeal to the middle of society today." The association BALPro is a platform of interest in the market, where all the (new) players in the field of alternative proteins can network and exchange information about the challenges that exist here. Fabio Ziemßen continues: "In order to be able to compete with large sites in the USA, Israel, Singapore or Wageningen, we need a community, an exchange between the players whose backgroun is not the traditional food production.

The panel on alternative proteins included Bernhard Krüsken (German Farmers' Association) & Hubertus Paetow (President of the DLG). Krüsken states that the new proteins do not appear out of nowhere. Raw materials are also needed here and in the course of this, the protein topic is an important part of our sustainability discussion. The question of how food from these new production processes will be evaluated in the future also has yet to be answered, says Paetow. Here you'll find an extract from the debate.

The discussion "Agronomic Data" at the 5th Farm & Food in Berlin focused on the possibilities, acceptance and benefits of agronomic data in agriculture. Out of 2000 active satellites worldwide, around 580 are currently used for earth observation. A satellite view of Germany with 1.3 billion pixels can be displayed within 15 minutes. Rewatch the opening presentation by Dr. Katrin Kohler, Satlytics, to see how farmers can use this data to their advantage.
