Delphy Improvement Center has once again expanded the team of researchers for greenhouse horticulture. "These times necessitate greenhouse horticulture to become more sustainable and future-proof. Therefore research into the application of new technologies and cultivation concepts is indispensable. Two new researchers have been appointed to give ongoing and new research more substance and depth", they explain. Here's a fact you didn't know: both researchers are called Jeroen.
Delphy is an independent & international well-known research, training and crop support centre, based in the Netherlands. The company focuses on optimizing the worldwide production for food & flowers through the development and implementation of knowledge and expertise.

Both researchers will perform a large part of their work within the Delphy Improvement Center, but they are also specifically appointed for research at practice companies.
