VGD awarded co-winner at SIVAL Innovation

What is SIVAL Innovation?

Every year, this competition awards prizes for the best innovations in equipment, products and services for all types of plant production.

The plant sector being vast, the participants are classified by category:

  • Varietal innovation (seeds and seedlings)
  • Machinery and automatism
  • Inputs (crop protection, fertilization, biocontrol, oenological inputs, …)
  • Solutions for production (supports, supplies, small materials and equipment …)
  • Packaging, marketing (wrapping, labelling, packaging …)
  • Services, software (training, technical support, decision-support software, other services, etc.)
  • Collective approach (approach that has mobilised several private and/or public players in the interest of a sector (information, promotion, certification, mutualisation, etc.).
  • VDG competed in the Services and Software category for its horticultural lighting platform.
