    Research output: Contribution to journalArticleProfessional


    Talking in crop specific terms about tomatoes and trusses, for example, has become passé. Now it’s all about dry matter and stomatal apertures. This change was necessary because otherwise the growers in the greenhouse Innovation network Nieuwe Energie Systemen (INES) [New Energy Systems] in North Limburg could never have learned from each other. This is because the growers in this network are not organised into crop sectors anymore, but form a mixed group representing various crop sectors together. This is one of the conditions for fruitful sharing of experiences in cultivation using new energy systems. The approach works.
