Are you an IT professional and interested in to learn more about Rijk Zwaan, you are welcome to subscribe for this event.

“What I like about working at Rijk Zwaan is that I’m contributing to something tangible. It’s about new vegetable varieties and ultimately about better-quality food. We’re currently gathering both internal and external data on our new Azure data platform. Growers send us sensor data: information from inside their greenhouses about things like temperature, sunlight and how much water they’ve given the plants. It’s our goal to use these data sources to conduct more advanced analysis so that we can further improve the planning and predictability of our seed production.”
