A quick photo with the stand crew at Hortilux and then back to the table for discussions.
Bert Gheeraert and Claude Van Hoornweder of Vyncke. At the Belgian company they notice that growers are thinking a lot about finding a gas alternative for greenhouse heating, where biomass boilers are often added to an already diversified energy mix. Remarkably, it is mainly Dutch and other European growers who have Vyncke boilers and currently no Belgian growers. At the show, Vyncke also had North American visitors to exchange views with.
Jan Kees Boerman and Peter-Jan Goedegebuure of Environmental Monitoring Systems pointed out to visitors to the fair that even with minimal NOx levels, to a few decimal places, serious production losses can still occur. According to the men, this is one more reason to monitor NOx properly.

At Metazet Formflex visitors had the opportunity to be informed about cultivation on gutters, but also a Trike was brought along. Growers for whom the step to cultivation on gutters was still too ambitious, did not have to go home empty-handed. "Sometimes they come for gutters and still leave with a Trike", laughed Wilfred Lange.
"If you still want one, you have to be quick", we heard at the end of day 1, with a wink, at the Plantalyzer on the shared stand of Berg Hortimotive, HortiKey, Royal Brinkman and Hortilogics. Have all 1,000 of them been sold then, joked the photographer. At the end of Day 1, it summed up the positive mood overall. With sometimes slightly adjusted expectations, it was not such a crazy day at the fair.
