The European division of Syngenta Flowers has joined the Club of 100 Greenhouse Horticulture  at Wageningen University & Research (WUR) in the Netherlands. The membership provides Syngenta Flowers with an opportunity to contribute to the university’s continuous innovation in horticulture.

As a member of the Club of 100, Syngenta Flowers can make use of the broad expertise of the WUR Greenhouse Horticulture unit. In addition, members of the Club of 100 contribute to the funding of strategic research in greenhouse horticulture.

“It is pleasant that Syngenta Flowers joins the Club of 100,” says Sjaak Bakker of WUR Greenhouse Horticulture. “It is a well-known company that helps growers around the world meet the continuously evolving demand from the market and society with innovative solutions.”
