Valto presses ahead with lab facilities

The Dutch Valto has the ambition to become the virus expert in agriculture and horticulture in the upcoming five years. The company, known for the substance V10 that protects tomato plants against the pepino mosaic virus, is therefore upgrading its facilities. Research will take place in a greenhouse facility acquired last year, which will also contain a personal laboratory. LabVision shares a story to address this specifically.

Important to this story is Menno Westerdijk. After his job interview with Valto director Thorben Looije he went home with a challenge. If he could devise a plan for a new lab, which equipment did he expect to need for it, and which investment should be allocated for it? In the full article, which can be read here, he goes further into detail.

For now, we'll still have to wait a few years for the final lab. The redesigning of the greenhouses is planned over multiple years. To bridge the period until the design of the final lab, two temporary laboratories have been put in place at the end of June.
