Cesena Fiera is hosting International Asparagus Days October 16 and 17 in Pievesestina di Cesena, Italy.  The event will have a dynamic area opposite Cesena Fiera’s exhibition centre where visitors will have the opportunity to see live demonstrations of cutting-edge field technology applied to white and green asparagus. Four greenhouses in an area of approximately 5,000 square metres and 36 sessions including demonstrations and presentations spread over two days are part of the event.

During the trade fair, six types of machines will be in operation on both afternoons (2 – 5 p.m.) to showcase the best technical equipment available in this market sector: soil preparation, raised beds, mulching, transplanting, weeding and treatments, and harvesting. They will be presented by nine leading companies in the global market: Bagioni, Cosmeco, Engels, Europlastic, Forigo, Idromeccanica Lucchini, Officine Mengozzi, Roberto Bosch and Zanarini.

“The horticultural sector is one of the most dynamic sectors in the fruit and vegetable industry,” says Renzo Piraccini, President of Cesena Fiera. He says the focus of the event is to show how new technologies may open up new possibilities for the industry.  “Today, technology is what allows us to be competitive on an international scale,” he says.

In addition to the dynamic area, the International Asparagus Days exhibition halls will host nearly 80 exhibitors from all over the world, with an extensive programme of conferences and, on Thursday 18 October, technical visits in Emilia-Romagna and Veneto.
