Use the database Groenekennis to find practical, professional literature on ‘green’ subjects in the Netherlands. Keep up on trends, regulations and innovations in different agricultural fields, such as farming, livestock, plant nursery, and dairy production.

Sometimes you're looking for more straightforward information on professional practices in the Dutch agricultural and green sector. The Groenekennis database is then the way to go. It covers practical information in agriculture, food production, environment and governance.

Professional articles

You can find articles from professional journals, reports, videos, factsheets, websites and much more. These ‘grey’ sources are mostly about the Netherlands. The articles are written for professionals or practitioners in the green field and are not strictly research related. The information is written in everyday language and is easily accessible for readers without extensive background knowledge.
