The joint webinar will be presented by René Beerkens, greenhouse climate consultant at Hoogendoorn and Mark van der Werf, crop consultant at Koppert i.a.
René Beerkens, Hoogendoorn
As a Greenhouse grower’s son, it is no surprise that René Beerkens has a passion for Horticulture. René joined Hoogendoorn in 2000 to combine his interest for computers and horticulture as a consultant and trainer with a focus on data driven growing. His daily job is to help growers around the world to optimize their greenhouse climate, irrigation and energy controls. This is done by digitizing Growers' experience based on ‘green thumb’ feelings into strategically chosen digital set points on the Hoogendoorn climate controls.
Mark van der Werf, Koppert
Born and raised on a Cucumber farm, Mark van der Werf has been contaminated with “green fingers” at a young age. With nearly 20 years of experience in growing cucumbers and (snack) tomatoes, Mark focused more and more on new growing developments: The Next Generation Growing, plant juice analyses for steering fertilization and dosing microorganisms and bio stimulants for a stronger and healthier (more resilient) crop. In 2016, he started as a crop consultant for Koppert i.a. to help growers worldwide to make their crop more resilient.
