About us

Good, healthy and reliable high-quality propagating material and suitable varieties for horticultural entrepreneurs anywhere in the world. That's what we go for!

Variety testing

Breeders develop new varieties. We examine those varieties for national registration or Plant Breeders' Rights.

Inspections

We inspect plant material for quality, diseases and pests, paying attention to administration, company hygiene, our own quality checks and product traceability.

Import & Export

Material that leaves or enters the EU is inspected by Naktuinbouw or the NVWA (Netherlands Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority). In this way, horticultural entrepreneurs can trade their material all over the world in a healthy way.

Laboratory tests

Every entrepreneur wants to deliver healthy products to his customer. We test propagating material of seeds, plants and trees for health and quality.

Together with national and international companies, organisations and governments we share our knowledge and expertise to promote learning and innovation.
