More crop per drop

Interpoma presents

Interpoma Award 2022

Water and the "more crop per drop" approach at the heart of this edition

The Interpoma Award 2022 aims to reward those technologies that, with a strong component of innovation, allow exceptional progress in water management in apple orchards, combining water saving with improved yield and fruit quality. 

The award is divided into two categories: one for companies and individuals, and one for start-ups. 

A jury of experts will first select and then judge the technologies entered. Entrants will be judged on their candidate products or services (e.g. machinery, systems, components, technological devices) on the basis of the documents submitted and a questionnaire that will be submitted to the contacts indicated. 

Nominations were received by the end of September. The names of the winners will be announced during the Interpoma 2022 Opening, which will take place on the eve of the event, on the evening of Wednesday 16 November.
