(bloem)bollen en planten

International character brings vulnerability.


For centuries, the Netherlands has held a strong, international position in bulb growing. The colourful results of our cultivation are widely admired. But the international character of the sector also makes it vulnerable. In that respect, important issues for the flower bulb sector are the phytosanitary threats, volatile and unfavourable exchange rates and (changing) trade boycotts.

The knowledge is often lacking for proper anticipation of all these trends and developments. The field is simply too complex for an overview of all the risks. Raetsheren therefore has an important role for the sector here: with knowledge, analyses and tailored services.
