Dutch-German research team develops new integrated crop protection system for greenhouse horticulture
Production systems in modern greenhouse horticulture are getting ever larger and more technological. This results in many advantages but makes daily crop inspection more difficult at the same time. How can growers still succeed in producing high-quality plants without pests and diseases?
Interreg project Healthy Greenhouse
Within the Interreg project ‘Healthy Greenhouse’ Dutch and German experts worked hard for four years to find a solution for this problem. They took tomato (high crop) and cyclamen (low crop) as test crops for their research. The result of this research is an innovative crop protection system using the most modern techniques which informs the grower about the presence of pests and diseases before symptoms appear, and advises and facilitates the application of necessary measures. “The system ensures the best possible restriction of chemical crop protection products, which is of benefit to all”, explains project leader Carolien Zijlstra of Wageningen UR.
Live demonstrations Healthy Greenhouse System
A live demonstration of the Healthy Greenhouse System can be visited on Wednesday 1 October, between 10.00 and 17.00 h and on Thursday 2 October, from 11.00 to 17.00 h. The demonstration will take place on the experimental station of the Landwirtschaftskammer North Rhine-Westphalia (Hans-Tenhaeffstrasse 40-42, 47638 Straelen, Germany). The various parts of the system will also be illustrated and explained with videos, posters and software programmes.
