Staying at the forefront of innovation
Trials & Studies
The horticulture segment is extremely dynamic due to the ever-increasing requirements for higher productivity. Growers are constantly looking for ways to further improve their climate, yield, crop quality, and ultimately their bottom line.
Svensson is committed to granting the grower even more control over their climate and we're continuously conducting trials and collaborating with research institutes, universities and other third parties to ensure that our products meet the highest standards.
