Organic greenhouse horticulture (OGH)(i.e the production in greenhouses or polytunnels) in the EU should improve its sustainability, production and productivity. Emissions of nutrients and its footprint should be reduced. Production and productivity are too low to meet the demand of the society.
The scientific challenges are:
to design sustainable irrigation and fertilization strategie,
to reveal the mechanisms of resilience, robustness and suppressiveness for the management of pests and diseases,
to integrate crop management, energy saving, renewable energy sources and new techniques and combinations with other activities,
business to realize climate neutral production.
