Dutch pepper acreage nears 1500 hectare

It should no longer come as a surprise: the cultivation of strawberries in greenhouses (or tunnels) is growing and by quite a lot as well, according to an update from the Centraal Bureau voor de Statistiek (Statistics Netherlands). 103 hectares were added in 2019.

There is also growth in the fruit vegetables, with peppers, in particular, noticeable with an increase in acreage of almost 200 hectares.
