HortiDaily Special Year Overview
June 2014: The first Greentech, 60 hectares in China and Dutch growers leave the industry
2 June 2014 : Dutchman Geert Leffers is involved in one of the biggest challenges of his career; the construction of a 60 hectare greenhouse operation for tomato cultivation in Daxing, the southern suburbs of Beijing, China. We spoke with him about the challenges he is facing in China.
4 June 2014: Every now and then it happens, the Dutch police discover a marijuana plant between vegetable crops in glass Venlo greenhouses. But the discovery that they found in June was something that they have never seen before. In a greenhouse in Houten, in the province of Utrecht, a gigantic marijuana nursery was found with more then 16,000 plants. The crops were hidden behind a few rows of cucumber crops. After the discovery, the police arrested three suspects on site. All of the plants were destroyed the same day.
15 June 2014: The International ambiance marked the first edition of GreenTech: We took more then 470 pictures during the first edition of the new international horticulture technology trade show GreenTech in Amsterdam. With about 300 exhibitors and many visitors from all around the world, we can look back at a very successful first edition. The fair brought much of what they hoped; international business contacts from all over the world and it's seems like the Amsterdam RAI is back on the map in the world of horticulture.
17 June 2014: Dutch growers make switch to alternative clipping system
We have visited several Dutch greenhouse growers to see how they are working with the alternative binding system of Agrifast. Many have written about and discussed the system and we thought it was time to see and hear from the growers themselves why they are working with this new concept, as the TOM System by Agrifast is gaining more and more popularity in Dutch horticulture; it is being used for tomatoes, peppers and even in high wire cucumbers.
26 June 2014: Further decrease in Dutch greenhouse acreage, more growers leave industry The Dutch Bureau for Statistics have published an update on the vegetable greenhouse acreage in The Netherlands. According to the new statistics, the total acreage with Greenhouse vegetables has decreased with 50 hectare to 4,840 hectare. With a decrease of 80 hectare, the pepper acreage shrank the most between 2013 and 2014; from 1,240 ha to 1,160 ha.
