My internship at Hollandplant

As a student of the Horticulture and Agriculture department at HAS University of Applied Sciences, I did my third year internship at Hollandplant. This internship was for a period of ten weeks and took place in the spring of 2019. During this internship I conducted research into the effects of LED, Hybrid and SON-T lighting on the development of greenhouse vegetables in the growing phase. I have gained a lot of knowledge with the applied lighting strategies.

During the internship I was very well guided by the company and I was able to follow all the processes of growing greenhouse vegetables. I have gained experience in all phases of the cultivation, such as sowing, grafting, transplanting, topping, etc … I am grateful to Hollandplant for this fascinating period and also that I was able to carry out my internship assignment in a fun working environment.
