The Global Forum for Innovations in Agriculture (GFIA) has emerged as a global authority on sustainable food production, driving innovation through exhibitions and conferences across the Middle East, Europe, and Africa.  The GFIA is a collaboration of globally significant partners committed to continuous innovation in agriculture in order to feed nine billion people by 2050.

GFIA Abu Dhabi is held under the patronage of H.H. Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan and enjoys strategic support from Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority and the UAE Ministry of Climate Change and Environment. The event hosted 7,000 attendees from around the world.

Responsive Drip Irrigation proudly presented its new plant-responsive water delivery system, and was honored to be awarded “Best Innovation by Startup.”  RDI’s new technology and system dramatically reduces water use and shows unmatched crop performance by allowing each plant to self-regulate its own water delivery. This new technology will also bring much needed solutions to arid countries and previously non-arable lands.

As the winner of the Startup Award 2019, RDI will gain free access to the 4th Global Agripreneurs Summit, which will take place on September 7 – 11th, 2019 in Thessaloniki, Greece, within the context of the Thessaloniki International Fair, the most important exhibition event in Greece with more than 263,000 visitors and inaugurated every year by the Prime Minister.

Future Agro Challenge (FAC) sponsorship of the winner means RDI can attend the Global Agripreneurs Summit for free; overriding the fee to attend the event and gaining direct access to be part of the Future Agro Challenge Global Championships by surpassing the procedural application process. RDI will gain free access to all activations in the Global Agripreneurs Summit: Global Bootcamp, FAC Global Championships, B2B meetings, participation in the Innovation Exhibition Space, Workshops, Inspiring Talks by Industry Leaders, as well as, Networking Events.

A special thank you to H.H. Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the entire GFIA team, and Future Agro Challenge.
