Horticulture: Vegetables and Fruits, Green & Glasshouses

Horticulture is an important part of agriculture in the Netherlands. Most horticulture is carried out in protected environments, which means growing
produce in glasshouses and greenhouses. All of the approximately 10 000 ha of Dutch glasshouses and greenhouses are heated by natural gas under computerised climate
control. About half of this area is used for vegetable production and the other half for horticulture (cut flowers and potted plants). The most important vegetable and fruit crops are: tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, eggplants, beans, salad-vegetables, strawberries and mushrooms.
