Integrated cultivation and crop protection

As Responsibly Fresh growers, we believe very firmly that using sustainable working methods makes the intrinsic qualities of our fruit and vegetables of even higher quality. That is why we systematically apply the principles of integrated cultivation and crop protection.

Principles of integrated cultivation

We combine various cultivation methods and abide by three healthy principles:

Prevention is better than cure (prevention)

Keep your eyes peeled (monitoring en observation)

Intervene as and when required (intervention)

Integrated crop protection

When determining the proper treatment, we as Responsibly Fresh growers combine various different techniques into a whole, doing precisely what is required to guarantee the quality of the fruit and vegetables and limit the ecological and economic damage.

Integrated cultivation and crop protection play a major role in making our fruit and vegetable cultivation sector more sustainable. Our approach guarantees that you can enjoy the intrinsic qualities of your fruit and vegetables to the full, as well as a low impact on the environment
