Substrate supplier Grodan from Roermond has this year become a partner of the Dutch Greenhouse Delta (DGD). “We can see many opportunities in the Gulf region and the Dutch Greenhouse Delta is helping us to jointly capitalise on them as horticultural suppliers.

Did you know even condensed water can be reused in the greenhouse? In the horticultural sector, Grodan aims to make optimal use of water’s value. Fun fact: less than half of the amount of water that is used when tomatoes are grown in soil is needed when grown in the greenhouse.
