Dutch horticulture gets big compliment from David Attenborough
October 06, 2020
David Attenborough’s new film ‘A Life On Our Planet’ (that feels like his final tribute) just released on Netflix. In his film, he gives a big compliment to the Netherlands and the Dutch horticulture sector in particular. “Dutch farmers have become experts in getting the most out of every hectare. Increasingly, they’re doing so sustainably,” he says. “It’s entirely possible for us to apply both low-tech and high-tech solutions to produce much more food from much less land. As we improve our approach to farming, we’ll start to reverse the land grab that we’ve been pursuing ever since we began to farm.” View a clip of the documentary below or, better yet, watch the full movie here.
Our little country is a frontrunner when it comes to horticultural innovations and we’ve made significant steps towards a more sustainable food production system. Largely thanks to our increasing technology-based approach towards food production, using a combination of engineering, plant science and computer-managed technologies to optimise production efficiency.
With this knowledge, we can contribute to much-needed collective solutions to global environmental challenges. So, let’s continue to innovate and share our knowledge with the world!

The more you measure, the more you know. Gathering large quantities of data is a great way to identify patterns and opportunities for optimization and greater efficiency. But as with most things, when it comes to data, it’s quality that’s most important. Rather than aiming to quantify their environment in its entirety, growers should start ... Read more
