Find out more about new developments to increase circularity and sustainability in protected horticulture

How can we meet fresh food demands for the rapidly growing population? By 2050 there will be an estimated 9+ billion people inhabiting the earth, but food supplies will be insufficient. Protected horticulture can ensure high quality production and contribute to global food security. Sustainable and circular cultivation is therefore a necessity. Big challenges such as a restricted availability of fresh water, an excess of greenhouse gas emissions, pest control are only a few of the issues that require urgent attention. How can indoor crop growers re-use or recycle their input resources such as water, materials and by-products? You’ll read about it here.
