Agriculture and technology in the Netherlands and California
The size of the agricultural sector in the state in combination with the worst drought in history drives (tech) smart solutions in water management to different levels. Irrigation system technology, ways to increase crop production as (water-)efficient as possible and of course combating climate change. The Netherlands have always excelled in water management but for the opposite reason: a surplus of water. Having a dense population and being the world’s second biggest agriculture exporter at the same time, led to the most innovative solutions by Dutch organizations to achieve high water quality (in agriculture).
Drought vs. flooding
This common challenge led to the research question: “How could California and the Netherlands improve their cooperation on sustainable water management and digitalization in agriculture? – Growing more and better strawberries by using less water and other natural resources.” Both the Netherlands and California are active in growing strawberries, a crop that needs a lot of water to grow. That makes this the perfect crop to compare the two countries on the latest innovations for climate smart agriculture.
