A specialist section of the Amsterdam show next month will look at how the factors of plant genetics, physiology, water, nutrient and climate management contribute to yield quantity and quality, and to plant health.
Backed by consultancy DLV Plant, substrate supplier Grodan, biological control specialist Koppert and vegetable seed breeder and supplier Nunhems, the platform will highlight synergies between each of these aspects of protected cropping.
Coordinator Erik Titulaer explained: "A collaborative seminar will be held by all four suppliers to offer insight in the newest developments, solutions and methods in the area of sustainable growing."
Horti Fair will be held at Amsterdam RAI from 30 October to 2 November.
UK production horticulture can become more profitable under one possible Brexit scenario, while other more drastic scenarios will lead to only minor losses in profitability, in contrast to other farming sectors, according to a new report by levy body AHDB with Agra CEAS Consulting.
One area affected by the uncertainty around Brexit will be the ongoing development of agricultural technology, seen by many as essential to retain Britain's productivity and competitiveness in fresh produce along with other farming sectors.
