Applied Bulbs, Trees & Fruit Research

The Bulbs, Trees, & Fruit business unit forms an important link between fundamental and applied research. We contribute to the systematic, sustainable and cost-effective development of the bulbs, trees and fruit sector by combining and incorporating our research results and practical knowledge into practical innovations and concepts, which growers can use for viable production at the business level.

The applied fruit research activities at Wageningen University & Research (WUR) contribute to the systematic development of sustainable and cost-effective production systems for the worldwide fruit sector.

The results of scientific research and practical knowledge are combined in order to provide practical innovations and concepts. The fruit research at WUR links science with commercial practice, an essential aspect for growers and other stakeholders looking to realise viable production.
