Every year, the Fruit Cultivation research team carries out independent research. In most cases, this research is carried out on the farm where the Apple Day or Pear Day is organised.
Key points in the research are:
- Development of digitalisation in fruit growing, including watering and fertigation, root pruning, thinning etc.
- Crop research
- Crop protection trials
- Fertilisation trials
- Organic fruit growing
The researchers and Fruit Farming advisers work closely together with growers (groups), interest groups, suppliers, customers and other chain parties.
