The AGROS programme
The AGROS programme is a collaboration between Wageningen University & Research (WUR) and 26 private partners, with funding provided by two of the Top Sectors programmes: Agri & Food and Horticulture & Starting Materials. AGROS stands for ‘Evolution to sustainable AGRicultural Operation Systems’. The main goal is to develop tools that can support production that is based on natural biological and ecological processes and thereby steer production towards sustainable use of inputs like energy, water, plant protection products and labour. The knowledge learned from the research and experiments and the professional guidance provided will benefit the participating arable and dairy farmers, greenhouse growers and technology companies. Over the next four years, the business community and the government will invest more than €6.5 million in this programme.
