"34% of growers have plans for innovation within two years."
The research has yielded remarkable results. In brief, the following can be concluded:
Nearly 40% of gardener CEOs said their area is not optimally equipped. The majority of this group (56%) believe that the area can not be optimised; this is over 21% of all greenhouse growers!!
34% of the companies have innovation plans within two years. New energy supply scores highest on the innovation list. Followed respectively by building a packing line, a culture change and new glass.
23% would like to expand the greenhouse. More than half of this group said they would also like to have more space and financial resources. The other half has a problem with the finances and/or space.
10% of the greenhouses have serious relocation needs and another 10% is open to it.
16% of glasshouse growers have a mortgage worth more than the actual value of the company and are NOT willing or able to sell at current market prices.
The main reason for a desire to move is the lack of space for expansion. Other reasons include better framework conditions; improved energy, better access and exit roads, better cooperation with the government and less restrictive zoning. The following table shows the respective percentages.
81% of gardeners want a company residence on a possible new location.
Many of the gardeners (42%) would prefer a completely newly developed plot, or at least existing buildings with new glass (29%).
The above results indicate that many greenhouse growers want to innovate and/or expand. The current location is apparently not always the most appropriate place.
Prima4a responds to the above wishes and give horticulturists space and conditions to be able to produce more efficiently and expand.
