The rapid rise of the middle class and rising per capita income in emerging economies are leading to increasing demand for healthy, safe and sustainably produced horticultural products. These developments offer new opportunities to farmers and stakeholders involved in the Horticulture sector. However, effective growth requires the transition from highly fragmented and informal market channels to a more professional horticultural sector. A modern domestic horticulture sector may in turn open up opportunities for export markets for horticulture products. This course provides an interactive approach to strengthen your capacities and to translate the gained knowledge and skills into value for your organization and the sector as a whole. This course covers the complete horticulture value chain, including fruit, vegetable and ornamental subsectors, and both greenhouse as well as open field production.
