Greenhouse Management Hightech cultivation


Green-fingers are not genetically determined but available for everyone

What do you learn?

Cultivation in greenhouses is a combination of green-fingers and hightech. To use the technology efficiently, knowledge of plant processes is required. By the correct interpretation of the plant condition, the optimal decisions can be made in climate and water strategy.

During the online training, the individual plant processes will be explained and translated into actions. The training is interactive, in small groups with exercises and discussions everyone is being challenged to practice the theory. After the training every participant will receive a certificate of participation.


What is being achieved?

  • Participants know the 10 concepts (see picture) and how to place them in context;
  • Know the 3 plant processes and how to optimize these processes;
  • Relations between greenhouse climate factors and their effect on yield and quality;
  • The participant understands how the plant uses the water and nutrients.
