Hoogendoorn whitepapers on Next Generation Growing available via webinars

Next Generation Growing (NGG) is a new way of growing introduced in the Dutch greenhouse industry by the Dutch Cooperative Grower Association. The primary aim of NGG is to optimize plant growth by improving the greenhouse climate conditions.

In the Netherlands, an intensive educational program was introduced where hundreds of Dutch growers and consultants have been educated and trained to expand their knowledge of physics and plant physiology. By applying the principles of NGG they improve their results and minimize energy costs at the same time.

On Thursday 5 October 2017, Hoogendoorn and LetsGrow are organizing the webinar Plant Empowerment, the 1st webinar of a series of 4 on Next Generation Growing. The subject of this 1st webinar is Plant Empowerment. René Beerkens from Hoogendoorn and Jan Voogt from LetsGrow will provide you in short with some backgrounds and applications on plant empowerment.

Register here.

In the 3 other webinars, the 3 plant balances will be discussed: assimilates balance, water balance and energy balance. These webinars will also be organized in cooperation with Hoogendoorn partners and will follow on the publication of a whitepaper on the topic.
