Sector roughage crops
Grass is the largest crop in the Netherlands, covering an area of 1 million hectare (400,000 acres). Combined with 250,000 hectare (100,000 acres) of green maize, the roughage sector is the largest, for CropSolutions as well. Within the regulatory restraints, grassland management and maize cultivation will have to become more productive in the future. In collaboration specific fertilizers are being developed for various types of soil to further improve production and therefore the profitability of cattle farms. Improving the fertility of the soil is an important focus point during this development. Our own research and the exchange of knowledge give CropSolutions and their partners a great advantage.
