Klokhuis viewers visit Future Crops 'vegetable apartment'

Stacking crates of vegetables in a greenhouse will not be enough in the long run, as shown last week in the Dutch children's program Het Klokhuis. The world population is growing, and in order to feed all mouths, 'vegetable flats' offer a solution. 

One of these 'vegetable flats' is in Poeldijk. Here, Future Crops grows herbs in several layers. Gio Curiel showed the viewers the cultivation, from single-layer sowing to multilayer growing. Joris van Nassau then took the viewers to a test facility where the relatively new method of cultivation continues to improve, for example through exposure research. For instance, there is currently a lot of attention for white light, on top of all the red-blue light.
