ABOUT THE INNOVATION PRZE

Automation and robotics are becoming increasingly important within the horticultural sector.  By further automating cultivation, harvesting, grading and packaging in the greenhouse, open field, shed and/or vertical farm, horticulture can take giant steps forward towards the realisation of efficient cultivation techniques, labour savings, a continuous business process and a reduction in the use of crop protection agents.

The Dutch Horticulture and Starting Materials Materials Top Sector (Topsector Tuinbouw & Uitgangsmaterialen, T&U) invites entrepreneurs who want to develop an innovative idea, solution or concept that demonstrably contributes to the further development of unmanned processes in horticulture to compete this prestigious award.
