PotatoEurope trade show is preparing for the 11th edition, which will take place September, 13-14, in Emmeloord, the Netherlands.

The theme of the 2017 edition of PotatoEurope is ‘Potatoes feed/meet the world’.

The event features 250 exhibitors and offers many opportunities to gain practical knowledge. PotatoEurope will also host several demonstrations, showing how the international potato world is preparing for a sustainable future with the help of technological advancements. In about a month, a predicted 15,000 visitors can watch potato harvesters, transport vehicles, tractors, storage machinery and box filling equipment – all live in action! In addition, the trial fields provide valuable information.
The potatoes that will be used in the live demonstrations had been planted in spring time and thechosen potato variety is called Innovator, 35-45 millimeters in size and with a spacing of 30 centimeters. The potatoes are being grown on a 30-hectare site belonging to the Aeres Landbouwbouwbedrijf farm, where the trade show and live demos will be held, by companies such as AVR, DeWulf-Miedema, Grimme, Ropa, Ploeger, VSS, Scanstone, and Veenma brands.

After harvesting, the potatoes will then be transported from the field to the storage-machinery and box-filling demonstrations using tipper lorries of the Fliegl, Jeantile, Beboma, Joskin, Areko, Dezeure and Agroliner brands.

During the storage demonstrations, machinery of the brands Dewurf-Miedema, AVR, Bijlsma Hercules, Prinsen-Visser, Van Trier, Grimme and Downs will swing into action.

The box-filling demonstrations are unique for this edition of the event, and visitors can see interesting demonstrations of the brands Bijlsma-Hercules, Mechatec, Tong Engineering, DeWulf-Miedema, Van Hees and Prinsen.
