SUSTAINABILITY OF ALSTROEMERIA
Alstroemeria flowers do not require much heat to grow. Moreover, biological pest control is highly effective in the cultivation of this flower, which also has the highest use of LED lighting in the entire cut flowers sector. This results in a particularly sustainable crop that often uses only half the amount of crop protection products and energy compared to other large cut flower crops.
Thanks to constant cooperation bet ween growers and breeders—including Royal van Zanten—in significant research projects such as “The Greenhouse of the Future”, Alstroemeria will maintain its position as a sustainable flower for a long time to come.
