The search for new solutions and new technologies is increasingly becoming a priority for growers, to make up for a lack of manpower, improve their productivity or even their comfort at work.
That's why companies responding to these new issues have a prominent place at SITEVI. And to give everyone the chance to take part in the show, LAB TECH will be launched in 2023, in partnership with Agri Sud Ouest Innovation, La Ferme Digitale and La Wine Tech.
At LABTECH, more than 15 companies will be showcasing their innovations, and will be available to professionals for mini-conferences, round tables and pitches.
Overview of the companies and their innovative solutions at LAB TECH (non-exhaustive list)

MYCOPHYTO provides concrete solutions for regenerative agriculture. The company, founded in 2017, develops unique biological soil revitalization solutions to reduce water and chemical fertilizer inputs (up to 20% reduction in water and synthetic fertilizers) through the optimization of associations between plants and mycorrhizal fungi adapted to each territory and each crop.
MyEasyFarm : An unavoidable player in precision farming, MyEasyFarm is the premium solution to manage a farm at one’s fingertips and monitor activities in real time. Easy to use and secure, MyEasyFarm centralises all your data and agricultural activities.
Defining plots, planning the work to be carried out every day, allocating machines and workers to each task and analysing the results of a season’s work all become very easy. The digital platform simply aggregates the different sources of intra-plot data. The direct connection with the farm equipment is one of its assets. No more flash drives! Everything is done in a click to send input modulation data to the control panels of the tractors, and in the other direction to record the work performed! In short, farmers can apply the right quantity of inputs in the right place at the right time, with the aim being to increase yield while protecting the environment. In addition, since the solution is interoperable, it dovetails with all existing programs and all tractor control panels, saving a lot of data entry time.
To go even further in supporting farmers in their everyday jobs while taking environmental issues into consideration, MyEasyFarm launches MyEasyCarbon. In connection with the future Row Crop Low Carbon label, the solution aims to analyse the farm and define an action plan to substantially reduce carbon emissions and create carbon credits over several years.
Ombrea develops agrivoltaic solutions for outdoor crops (vineyards, fruit trees, or field crops). We pilot agrivoltaic systems, equipped with solar panels placed above agricultural plots. Our goal is to create the ideal microclimate for the proper development of the crop, even in the event of extreme climatic hazards (drought, heat wave, hail, etc.). The solution developed by Ombrea thus combines crop protection and renewable energy production.
OpenWineData offers the wine industry a common platform for accessible, reliable, standardized and secure data offers.
Why is data crucial to transform the wine sector and help it face the challenges of tomorrow?
The amount of data generated by new vintages over the last 50 years is exponential.
There is no reliable source aggregating this information and making it available and usable to the 558,000 professionals working in the wine sector in France.
On a global scale, at least 5 times more data on wine is generated.
The opportunity to gather, structure and valorize this data in France can allow our vineyards to stay ahead and position France as the world leader in data in the wine sector.
OpenWineData is a common good at the service of the competitiveness of the French sector.
The digitalization of our societies leads to a structural and technological platformization of the economy. In this context, the French wine industry of excellence risks being intermediated by actors, mostly foreigners, who capture its value.
From raw data to business impact, the platform democratizes access to data and allows the sector to be more competitive and enhance the quality of French production.
The pooling of digital infrastructures allows the sector to innovate in conjunction with public research actors and start-ups.
The creation of Data commons makes it possible to develop innovative solutions to conquer new international markets.
