How exactly these innovations will look like, is a challenge which the Dutch horticulture sector has accepted. It develops the most advanced greenhouses and greenhouse technology, in which crops , plants and flowers can grow by using minimum amounts of water, fossil energy, chemical fertilizers and pesticide.
