The business unit Greenhouse Horticulture is dedicated to innovating for and with the greenhouse horticulture sector. In collaboration with the business and scientific communities and the government, we analyse issues relating to operational management and cultivation and translate them into application-oriented research and innovation procedures.
The business unit Greenhouse Horticulture has locations in Wageningen and Bleiswijk. The Bleiswijk location is in the heart of the municipality of Lansingerland, the second most important greenhouse horticulture location in the Netherlands. This means that we can communicate directly with both the professional field and the scientific community, enabling us to take advantage of vast professional and scientific knowledge, expertise, and facilities within Wageningen UR.
Our research facilities are unlike any in the world, with greenhouses for research into sustainable crop protection, experimental energy-saving greenhouses, and measurement set-ups for research into greenhouse materials and early signalling of crop stress. The Bleiswijk location has two Innovation and Demo Centres on the Energy and Water Treatment grounds.
