Apples and pears are the most important organic fruit crops in the Netherlands. Smaller crops, such as berries and grapes for wine production are up and coming. Around 50% of the total Dutch organic fruit production is exported. To be able to facilitate organic fruit growers, Wageningen UR and the Louis Bolk Institute carry out a variety of research aimed specifically at organic fruit production. Hot topics are the prevention and control of scab and black rot and the development of new varieties.
The report contains sector facts, sector aspirations, current affairs and research projects.
