The method of rose production in the Netherlands guarantees top quality flowers. The down side to growing these high quality products is the large energy consumption. And therefore rose growers have been asking: Can production be more energy efficient while maintaining the quality? Arie de Gelder, researcher at Wageningen UR Greenhouse Horticulture thinks it is. He is currently investigating the effect of air handling units on the climate. Using forced ventilation with outside air he wants to prevent the humidity in the crop becoming too high.
