Technology development for the greenhouse is happening everywhere these days. But as always, much of the innovation we see adopted in North America has roots in Europe.
GreenTech 2018, in Amsterdam, was a good place to get a preview of what may be ahead for U.S. growers. Efficiency and sustainability are tech drivers in European greenhouses, and that focus was on display from more than 450 exhibitors during the June event. As you might expect from a Dutch show, much of the technology is designed with vegetable production in mind, but certainly has application for ornamental crops as well. Greenhouse Grower® TECHNOLOGY was on hand to take a look at the latest developments. Check out the slideshow above for nine products you should know, covering everything from software and sensors to robotics, water, and lighting.
