Last month, Zwirs Knijnenburg started the construction of a demonstration greenhouse at the production site of Yara Vlaardingen BV. The new demo greenhouse in Vlaardingen is a welcome addition to the two existing research centres, Yara Dülmen (DE) and Yara Pocklington (UK). While the centres in Dulmen and Pocklington have a scientific R & D character, the demo in Vlaardingen is a more practical demonstration centre.
The operation includes 3 completely independent sections and covers an area of 240 M². Section 1 is designed for modern substrate / vegetable production. The second section will provide tidal tables and the third section is a flexible open division. Within each section, it is possible to work with different types of fertilization. This makes the greenhouse very suitable for various kinds of comparative demonstration crops.
Construction is in full progress and the first crops are scheduled for January 2014.
