Screen replacement at Lijntje Tomato Nursery enhances crop cultivation and productivity
In 2017, Rob Oosterom, co-owner of tomato nursery Lijntje in Moerkapelle, Netherlands researched possibilities and quotations for a new energy screen that had to be installed in his 2.5-hectare greenhouse. The existing screen had been in use for twelve years at that time. It was not flame retardant - which was the main reason for replacement - but otherwise, there was little to criticize.
Chiltepec: Pioneers in the use of climate screens to optimize flower growth
In the greenhouses of Chiltepec, located in the states of Mexico and Veracruz, a wide variety of potted flowers are cultivated, including Anthuriums, Bromeliads, and a selection of Orchids. These greenhouses have been pioneers in Mexico using climate screens since 2001. Svensson's climate screens have become a fundamental tool for Chiltepec, allowing them to achieve a perfect balance between protecting their crops and ensuring the optimal development of their beautiful flowers.
In conversation with...Puck van Holsteijn
Challenge accepted! That is probably what Puck van Holsteijn also thought when she said 'yes' to the role of director of the World Horti Center in September 2021. A challenging position, for various reasons. Because it is quite an undertaking: innovating, connecting, inspiring and sharing knowledge all together with entrepreneurs, researchers, education and the government. How does she accomplish this? We spoke with her to get her thoughts on her latest endeavor.
Climaflow – the solution to accelerate your growing climate
ClimaFlow, a solution that combines Hinova’s VentilationJet System®, and Svensson’s advisory service, Climate House.
Luxous H2no - Bring in the light
Condensation droplets on your climate screens cause an 8% reduction in light. Svensson’s renewed H2no technology transforms these condensation droplets into a film of water, and thus prevents light from being lost.
Consciously growing together.
Over four decades, Svensson has increased production and improved crop quality globally. But we are also helping growers worldwide to create a better climate for sustainable greenhouse cultivation with reduced climate impact.
Luxous Eco important step towards circular greenhouse horticulture

PDI - A family business with vision and courage
They are natural talents who have made their family businesses great through hard work. The practice was their school and not so much the school desk. Peter Dekker turned PDI into a global player. Bert van Ruijven of Arcadia had the vision and courage to go for disbudded chrysanthemum. Patriarchs who now make their (life) experience available to a new generation.
From analyzing data to optimizing cultivation
Data is becoming increasingly valuable, also in greenhouse horticulture. That is no longer news. To measure is to know, but what do you know exactly? In addition to the data itself, the interpretation of data is just as important.

Can greenhouse horticulture save the climate? Or will the climate save greenhouse horticulture?
