More Dutch growers start with interplanting:

"“Year-round consistent quality thanks to interplanting"

Interplanting is a greenhouse cultivation method that is increasingly used in horticulture. It means there are two crops 'growing together' in one greenhouse. The existing plants grow better and yield more tomatoes. The new, young plants are planted in between the adult plants. This creates a nice transition, with harvesting of both types of tomatoes overlapping.

"This is the first year we applied interplanting at our Noordvliet location. As a result, we can supply Dutch products to our customers year round. This was their wish, and it’s something we wanted to do. All work is accurately planned, allowing the process to go smoothly. Despite demanding some flexibility from people, they have performed very well!" says Ducth grower Roy van Vliet (location manager Noordvliet in Middenmeer).

The existing crop shows coarse vine tomatoes. The new crop is of a different kind and gives cocktail tomatoes. As a result, the young plants are clearly visible.

A second location in Middenmeer also converted to interplanting. "This method yields year-round tomatoes from Dutch soil, so the quality can be guaranteed. The consumer's opinion is very important to us, because they are the final customers. This way, we can meet their expectations!" says Edwin de la Combé (COO Combi Vliet).
