On Wednesday, October 30th, the United States Ambassador to the Netherlands, Pete Hoekstra, visited Certhon.
The Ambassador has attended numerous events in the past year due to the recent boom in demand for high-tech agricultural solutions with US growers. As Ambassador, Mr. Hoekstra realizes the importance of strengthening relationships with leading companies in the sector that are actively providing innovative solutions for US companies dedicated to year-round growing. During his visit, Ambassador Hoekstra was able to learn more about Certhon’s in-house innovations, in addition to an insider look on the various crop trials Certhon’s agronomy team are currently conducting in a daylight free facility.
With this visit, Certhon sees firsthand the impact of the Dutch “Golden Triangle” approach, which brings together key stakeholders in business, government and academia, and how a similar approach can be mirrored in the United States.
