National Geographic has published an article about how Dutch agriculture shows us what future farming might look like.

The role of Wageningen University & Research (WUR), as nodal point of Food Valley (the Dutch agro-tech version of Silicon Valley), in the development of new farming concepts is described extensively. Many examples are presented, all aiming at a higher food production while reducing the use of resources.
HPP is one of the chair groups which participate in related projects and students from all over the world contribute to our research. Several of them describe how they expect to implement the knowledge gained in Wageningen in their home country.
