Green Knowledge for Entrepreneurs

Published on
July 14, 2008

In collaboration with Applied Plant Research, the Documentation and Publications Services department has developed an approach to bring Best Practices in the area of Plant Health to the attention of entrepreneurs. All reports in the area of crop protection have been collected, and procedures and additional sources of information have been coupled to each other per crop.

These activities have taken place within the framework of the Green Knowledge Cooperative project "Improving Knowledge Use on Crop Protection". The Library, along with Applied Plant Research researchers, is continually updating the collection and publishing it at www.groenekennis.nl, a portal aimed at researchers.

This project is a nice example of how the Library and researchers from Applied Plant Research are working together to promote knowledge transfer. You can also find an overview at: http://library.wur.nl/gkn/rapporten_gewasbescherming.html
