Knowledge Center

Our Knowledge Center currently comprises twenty-five self-learning modules that cover a broad range of subject areas, which all have a direct impact on how water and nutrients are managed in nursery and greenhouse operations.

The objective of each module is to give participants an in-depth knowledge of that specific topic, so that the development and implementation of best management practices is associated with that knowledge base.
