WATER WEEK 1- 12 MAY 2019

WATER WEEK 1 - 12 May We all know the amount of usable water on Earth 🌍 is scarce. But did you know that the greenhouse horticulture sector is looking for ways to help reduce the amount of water πŸ’§they use in the cultivation of vegetables?

There is a big difference in the use of water in the different cultivation methods, from 60 litres per kg of tomato in an open field in a Mediterranean country to 4 litres in a closed Dutch greenhouse for the same kg of tomatoes πŸ…. The 15 litres of tomatoes is the average use in today's modern greenhouse. Depending on the investments a grower makes and his way of growing (following the principles of the NEW CURRENT) this will be less. The 4 litre of the closed greenhouse will therefore soon be achievable in regular cultivation.

We love to tell you more about water usage and Dutch greenhouse horticulture.Interested? Book a tour to Tomatoworld: Or subscribe to our newsletter!
