Delphy and Van der Knaap join forces

Publication date: 17-03-2022

Van der Knaap has joined Delphy Innovative Soft Fruit Center (IFSC) in Horst (NL) as innovation partner. This research centre is a unique acquisition for the soft fruit sector. For Van der Knaap it is a special opportunity to cooperate with a party that has a lot of knowledge and can do independent research.

This cooperation brings the expertise of Van der Knaap in the field of substrates together with the expertise of Delphy in the field of soft fruit crops. With this we obtain good practical data with which we can guide and advise growers in their cultivation situation.

Substrate for soft fruit cultivation is one of the specialisations of Van der Knaap. Our account managers have unique knowledge in this area. In our own test centre 'de Kas’ research is continuously being carried out and products and innovative cultivation systems for organic cultivation in particular are being developed.

Van der Knaap and Delphy have a common goal: an innovative soft fruit sector. As an industry we are looking for sustainable solutions. By combining our knowledge, we can strengthen each other and deliver added value for soft fruit growers worldwide.
