Slowly but surely, the Dutch horticultural ecosystem is starting to resemble that of Israel. Reason enough for Israeli Export Institute, Greenport West-Holland and Innovation Quarter to invite growers from both countries to an online seminar on June 29 to exchange knowledge and explore business opportunities. Seven Israeli companies present their greenhouse technologies.
In recent decades, Israel has become one of the frontrunners in greenhouse horticulture technologies. It is not surprising that such innovative solutions arise here, according to the organizers of the event.
For a long time, Israelis had to be self-sufficient and encouraged to be innovative when it came to growing crops on their poor desert lands with limited manpower. The result of this innovative mindset is clear today: Israeli horticulturists are developing advanced irrigation techniques, climate control systems and robotic systems for greenhouses.
The Netherlands can learn from Israel
Slowly but surely, the Dutch horticultural ecosystem is starting to resemble that of Israel. For example, due to global climate change, Netherlands growers are more often confronted with drought and water scarcity. In addition, the enormous worldwide demand for Dutch crops regularly leads to staff shortages in the greenhouses.
That is why Israeli greenhouse technologies are becoming increasingly interesting for the entire Dutch horticultural ecosystem. Furthermore, Dutch greenhouse builders that are active internationally could also benefit from the integration of Israeli technologies to optimize their turnkey projects. In other words, it is time for Dutch and Israeli horticulturists to exchange their knowledge and explore business opportunities.
During the online seminar on ‘Greenhouse Technologies’ on July 29, participants will have the opportunity to get to know seven Israeli companies that provide innovative greenhouse technologies.
