Agriculture: Arable Farming & Forestry

ARABLE FARMING:
In the Netherlands, seed providers, agrichemical manufacturers, plant breeding companies, and practiced growers collaborate with the world famous Wageningen University to produce a wide range of crops. The Netherlands has flat landscape, fertile soils and stone-free fields. Our farmers are well-educated and skilled. We produce various agricultural products e.g. cereals, potatoes, sugar beets, fodder maize and grasses with high quality and quantity that are rarely matched anywhere in the world.

FORESTRY:
Proper forest management is the key to biodiversity, a sustainable timber supply and, in many rural areas, to the livelihood of local communities.
