Production of Vegetables in Greenhouses

The cultivation of vegetables is a key component in ensuring global food security. Vegetables are a fundamental part of the human diet, providing food diversity and contributing to balanced and nutritious diets. Fruity vegetables have shorter growing cycles compared to other crops, with greenhouse technology, cultivation has become extremely efficient, reducing required resources, improving yields and no pesticides.

Vegetables represent the edible components of a plant, including (non-sweet) fruits, which are commonly classified as vegetables. It is imperative to acknowledge that numerous vegetables cultivated in greenhouses, such as tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers, eggplants, and zucchinis, are scientifically categorized as fruits of plants.

The most commonly vegetables cultivated in Dutch greenhouses are respectively:

  1. Tomatoes
  2. Bell Peppers
  3. Cucumbers

All three of the above greenhouse vegetables are grown on hydroponcis, using hanging-gutters and substrate mats. However, not all vegetables are in this environment. Varieties of lettuce, baby spinach, and other leafy vegetables, thrive on a water based cultivation methods using Ebb&Flow or NFT.
