Berry growers impressed by greenhouse technologies

Inspired by the results of near-market research at specialist soft fruit facilities such as the Proefcentrum at Hoogstraten in Belgium (http://www.proefcentrum.be/en), growers in the Benelux countries have been investing in the latest greenhouse technology for some time, and now UK growers are seeing the benefits of modern growing systems too.

Berry growers Andrew Barrie, John Busby and Colin Grant recently visited a number of CMW customers using state of the art greenhouse technologies. Hosted by Nick Field and Gordon Badham of CMW, there was much to see:
