Henan Sino-Dutch Greenhouse Technology

China: First plants in Dutch-Chinese greenhouse in Henan

In recent months, Horticultural Business School's partners (Prins Group, Stolze and Royal Pride) have been working hard on the new greenhouse for Henan Sino-Dutch Greenhouse Technology Co.Ltd. This company is a joint venture between HBS and Chinese partners.

Knowledge transfer

The joint venture was established last year with the objective of spreading knowledge about Dutch horticulture in China and adding value. As a first step, the company built its own tomato greenhouse of 2.4 hectares in Henan Province. The greenhouse is equipped with diffused glass, continuous ridge ventilation and insect screens. It was also decided to build a cultivation space with ebb and flow floor, so the cultivation of plants can be done in-house. Daily management is in the hands of Chinese employees who have earned their Masters in Plant Science at Wageningen University and spent two years at Dutch grower Royal Pride to gain practical experience. They are given daily support by Royal Pride employees. Thus optimal success of the project is pursued.

Last week the plants were placed in the greenhouse and the growers were able to show what they learned in the Netherlands.

Horticultural Business School was established to help investors make the right choices, to realize projects, educate people, and to assist in the operation of businesses. In this way the company both hopes to contribute to the commercial value of Dutch horticultural knowledge abroad, while continuing to be part of the developments taking place. At the same time the long-term involvement of HBS assures the investor of the best possible knowledge transfer and therefore increases the chances of success.
