Event description

Join the Benelux Business Council in a ‘behind the scenes’and tour at Pure Harvest, a regional innovator in sustainable agriculture focused on the production of greenhouse fruits & vegetables in the challenging (extreme) climates of the Arab Gulf region using world-leading greenhouse growing technologies.

Mr. Jan Prins, Head Grower at Pure Harvest, will discuss the techniques used as well as the agricultural footprint. Further, we will explore Artificial Intelligence (AI) in growing and discuss why organic produce is not healthier. Last but not least, he will talk about why controlled-environment agriculture (CEA) is the future to achieve true food security in arid climates.
