Next Generation Growing (NGG) is a new way of growing introduced in the Dutch greenhouse industry by the Dutch Cooperative Grower Association. Hoogendoorn has been involved in the research since 2006. Although NGG is mostly associated with energy savings, the primary aim is to optimize plant growth by improving the greenhouse climate conditions. So the main focus is on plant growth and development. Although substantial energy savings are achievable as well this is regarded as a bonus rather than a goal.
In the Netherlands, an intensive educational program was introduced. Within this program already over hundreds of Dutch growers and consultants have been educated and trained to expand their knowledge of physics and plant physiology. By applying the principles of NGG they improve their results and minimize energy costs at the same time.
