One of the key points within horticulture is crop optimization, with the Netherlands as the leader when it comes to innovative techniques. With the aim of sharing these techniques with international crop advisors, LetsGrow.com, Hoogendoorn Growth Management and Ludvig Svensson have joined forces. Following a series of successful workshops, crop advisors from all over the world are invited to participate in a free webinar January 15.
Hoogendoorn, Svensson and LetsGrow.com constantly develop new technologies for crop registration, climate monitoring, screen techniques and climate regulation. To address the growing demand for cultivation knowledge, these three leading suppliers have arranged a webinar to share their innovative technical expertise and practical experience with crop advisors worldwide.
During the webinar Christiaan Posthumus Meyjes from LetsGrow.com will discuss the available options for climate analysis via the LetsGrow.com data platform. René Beerkens from Hoogendoorn Growth Management will talk about the latest climate regulation techniques and about energy saving. Svensson’s Ton Habraken will go into detail about light transmission with climate screening, greenhouse dehumidification and the influence of using of double layer climate screens.
Knowledge sharing is a must
Leon Lankester, director and manager of Technology and Innovation at Agro AdviesBuro, participated in a workshop held by the same suppliers in September that focused on similar topics: “The OVTO (Organization of Agricultural Advisors and Researchers) wants to proactively establish itself as an industry level knowledge-based institution, as does Agro AdviesBuro, within the agricultural industry and to contribute to the creation and content of concrete developments, indicators and techniques in sustainability. Knowledge about the technical feasibility and application of innovations is therefore crucial. Knowledge exchange about the latest development, such as energy saving, is a vital necessity for us.The workshop was an extremely informative and useful session.”
