Specialisation Greenhouse Horticulture

Greenhouse Horticulture is a unique agro-system and is an important economic sector in The Netherlands. It is the only production method that can significantly control abiotic and biotic factors.

The advances in this field are due to a steady flow of innovative technological approaches. In this way, for example, detailed investigations of the regulation of organ formation can be directly related to improved control techniques in production situations. The study of the economics of plant production systems and marketing also contributes to the success of the sector.
