Summary

Agriculture in the province of Flevoland is very diverse in identity and presentation. The sector contains different ‘types’ of entrepreneurship besides different subsectors (field and vegetable farming, dairy farming, greenhouse horticulture, flower bulb growing, etc.). These types not only hold conventional, organic and biodynamic agriculture. There is also much variation within these three main stream types as to the motivation of farmers ‘to change’ and the direction in which they are moving. This report contains an inventory of such types and of the innovations that take place within those types.
