Services that help African growers gain maximum profit

In the current horticulture market technology is constantly changing and evolving. The Hoogendoorn Growth Management and Bosman Van Zaal user-friendly automation solutions and management information system always comply with the latest technologies. This helps you as grower to always be a step ahead and reach the maximum results out of your greenhouse or open field crops.

However, besides the right tools, knowledge is an important driver to get the maximum benefits out of the horticulture technology. Therefore we share our extensive knowledge in various ways, e.g. on-site training, webinars, e-learning, whitepapers and online helpdesk. We believe that cooperation and sharing knowledge contribute to innovation and growth. With knowledge sharing you can have your crop grow as well as possible and obtain maximum profit from your production.

On-site training

Bosman van Zaal supplies local service and support for African growers and installs the systems at your greenhouse. They also provide maintenance service, crop-focused and user training, and technical support to customers.

Experienced trainers provide growers with new insights on e.g. crop management, fertilization/irrigation, climate control, crop protection, food security and yield performance. With this knowledge growers and their teams can take the greenhouses to the next level and increase business success.


For years already Hoogendoorn offers webinars tailored to our (international) customers, to make it possible for any grower in the world to receive training. Our experts dive deeper into subjects that are relevant to your production such as optimization of software settings or botanical and physical processes. This online training can be scheduled flexibly and can be followed from one’s own workplace.


A webinar program is custom-made: as a grower you indicate the area on which you wish to focus the training. During this online training, the Hoogendoorn expert answers all your questions about production related subjects, such as plant physiology, software settings and cultivation methods. A webinar can be scheduled flexibly and can be followed from you own workplace, individually but also in groups.

Next to customer specific webinars Hoogendoorn also offers several general webinars during the year in which relevant topics are being explained. These webinars can be followed for free. To stay informed about upcoming webinars, visit our website and subscribe to our newsletter.
