SMART GROWERS –  Innovation in the agriculture and horticulture sector

From irrigation advice by drones to intelligent control of asparagus crops by sensors. Renik van den Eynde talks about our role in this project and how we are still reaping the benefits of it today.

Our infrastructure

Curious about what we have to offer?
Our research facilities consist of a 1.7 ha greenhouse (°2006) with 35 independent compartments where tomatoes, lettuce, sweet pepper, cucumber and courgette, among others, are grown.

Over 10 ha of fields are available for field vegetable trials on leeks, cauliflower, leafy vegetables, asparagus, cabbage, zucchini, etc.

Our network

Together we are strong. Within the Research Station, we can count on an extensive network. On the one hand, we have a grower network with more than 600 members. This way, we always keep our finger on the pulse in the field. But on the other hand, we also have valuable connections on a national and international network.
