Smit Kwekerijen and sustainability

In floriculture, growers all over the world put a lot of effort into growing clean, sustainable and honest plants. We at Smit Kwekerijen also think it is important to make an effort fort he environment. We care about the environment and strive to grow our plants in an environmentally friendly way.

That is why we have not been using Neonicotinoids for years, because the use of these pesticides is possibly the cause of bee mortality in the Netherlands.

In addition, Smit Kwekerijen makes minimal use of chemical pesticides and maximum use of biological pesticides, such as predatory mites and parasitic wasps. We also make plants more resilient and healthier by using resources from the NatuGrow system, which stands for Natural Growing.

This way of growing produces plants that are less susceptible to diseases such as Pythium, Fusarium, Mildew and Botrytis.
