Climate change, drought, population growth – our changing world presents a huge challenge for the agriculture and horticulture sectors. Ridder works hard to help farmers and growers to transition successfully to more efficient and, above all, more sustainable production methods. The shift towards protected cultivation plays a key role in this: within a controlled greenhouse environment, crops can be grown with minimal use of water and fertilizers, regardless of the external weather conditions. However, challenges involving economies of scale, labor management and shortages of expertise also require practical innovation and effective services, so that growers really can achieve their ambitions.

As an international family business, part of Ridder’s everyday work for the past 65 years has been developing solutions that can enable horticultural businesses and their suppliers make their companies and projects as successful as possible. Together with our global network of partners, we provide complete system solutions to create the ideal growing environment – from mechanical systems to digital services. In designing these products, we draw on all the knowledge and experience that we have acquired in the past. But above all else, we are a future-facing company, and we have a vision for the autonomous greenhouse of the future. That means moving towards a fully automated and intelligent growing environment.
