Mr. Loek Hermans Chairman Top Sector Horticulture and Starting Materials

The Horticulture and Starting Materials sector makes a considerable contribution to the Dutch economy. Our knowledge and training institutes are internationally recognized and respected. And the business community in the cluster often ranks number one in their respective fields. The sector is world's largest exporter of fresh vegetables and the largest player in the export of cut flowers, flower bulbs and seed potatoes. Societal and economic challenges compel us to do more with less. This is, however, the strength of this Dutch sector: propagation materials for disease and drought-resistant crops with a higher yield, a better taste and shelf life, achieve the highest productivity per hectare with less use of pesticides, water and minerals. In this process we work demand driven and look for solutions adapted to specific local circumstances all over the world. The Dutch top sector is at the forefront of energy efficiency, renewable energy and CO2 reduction.
