At BASF Vegetable Seeds, the aim is to obtain more production, and better quality and also look for resistance in varieties to support farmers around the world. The company conducted a cucumber trial in the data-driven greenhouse at its test facility in the Netherlands to explore whether the Plant Empowerment principles could help to achieve these ambitions. “Our goal was already quite high, but in the end, we produced 50 pieces per square meter more than we expected,” says Marcel Huibers from BASF Vegetable Seeds. So the implementation of the Plant Empowerment principles exceeds expectations at BASF Vegetable Seeds.
