Throughout the years the horticulture in the Netherlands kept developing at a high pace. From flat glass and brick wall greenhouses in the 1960’s to modern greenhouses up to 7 metres tall.
This development can also be seen in the total area of greenhouses. In 1960 the total horticultural surface was around 4000 hectares, in 2012 it has risen to 10.500.
These innovations are driven on one hand by wanting to grow at an optimal level, whilst optimizing water usage, biology, energy, environment and labour. On the other hand, changing consumer demands for a nicer, cleaner, more tasting and healthier product have also driven innovations higher.
