Abstract

A brief description of the evolution of greenhouse horticulture in the Netherlands in the period 1950-2000, including a statistical review of areas, physical yield and labour productivity, and a qualitative review of technical and institutional development. The report first provides the story of a Dutch greenhouse vegetable grower. Furthermore, horticulture in the Yangtze Delta is positioned on the time axis from 1950-2000. Traditional horticulture and industrial horticulture in the Yangtze Delta show many technical similarities to Dutch greenhouse horticulture in 1960 and 1980, respectively. Finally, some recommendations for improving the institutional coherence in horticulture in the Yangtze Delta and for involving Dutch agribusiness are given.
