AMI"s next Agricultural Film conference will take place once again in Barcelona from 29 - September-1st October 2015 and is the ideal place to meet up with key players from the industry. Last year"s edition had records numbers with over 180 participants attending from across the globe. 


Over the past 60 years, agricultural output and productivity has significantly increased and plastic agricultural film for silage, mulch and greenhouse applications has made substantial contribution to this development. The use of plastic films has been notable in the horticultural industry, as well as in preserving and improving quality of silage, contributing to continuously increasing yields. Plastic films have also enabled the extension of cultivation in terms of the growing season and the location through the use of protective mulch and greenhouse films.


For players in the market the business is a challenging one with many conflicting trends.

Agricultural Film 2015 discusses the above issues, presents research findings and possible solutions to the problems faced by today's protected agriculture. It brings together agricultural and horticultural cover specifiers, researchers, manufacturers and the supply chain to the industry and provides a forum to network with professionals active in this challenging industry.


AMI has once again gathered a panel of expert speakers. There will be a particularly interesting focus on Asia this year, with presentations from Exxonmobil Asia Pacific Research & Development and the Chinese National Agro-Technical Extension and Centre Ministry of Agriculture. 


AMI will of course give a market overview based on their ongoing work in that particular area.The rest of the programme will cover topics such as the latest technological advancements, film waste reduction recycling and degradability, new film formulations and high performance greenhouse films. 

In addition to delivering quality papers Agricultural Film 2015 also offers superb and cost-effective networking opportunities with its extensive table top exhibition area.  

The conference is sponsored by Novamont and Kuraray.
