Outreach courses provided by the Horticulture and Product Physiology group

The HPP-group (co-)organizes courses which are meant for professionals in lighting, greenhouse production and post harvest, as well as MSc and PhD students, post-docs and junior scientists from all over the world.
We also provide tailor-made courses for private companies and universities upon demand. Participants of our courses typically have knowledge level at bachelor or master degree.
Our tailor made courses focus on physiology and development of crops in horticulture, cultivation in greenhouses, post harvest physiology and technology, photosynthesis, light, plant sensors, simulation models for growth of greenhouse grown crops, etc.

Courses coming up:
Postharvest technology course Wageningen - 9-12 October 2018
Lighting in greenhouses and vertical farms - February 2019
