In the first episode of the BASF video series on data-driven cucumber cultivation, Marcel Huibers (agronomist) and cucumber specialist Kees van Vliet invite us into the BASF Vegetable Seeds greenhouse in 's-Gravenzande. They tell us all about key insights from 2022, learnings, and we get a preview of what's to come in 2023.
Marcel and Kees start with good news: the first year in 's-Gravenzande was successful. It has helped set the direction for data-driven cultivation. Which cultivation technical aspects deserve to be developed further? And which genetics best suit this way of growing?
Of course, 2022 also offered learning points. On plant registration and RTR (Ratio Temperature Radiation), for example.
To conclude, the experts talk about the plans for 2023. How will the energy market affect the plans for the upcoming year? And how to verify RTR in combination with lower lighting capacity?
