Welcome to Partnership Horticulture

Tillväxt Trädgård – Partnership Horticulture is a national collaboration between academia and the horticultural industry with the aim to create growth and sustainable development in the horticultural sector.

One objective is to increase the value of products and services for fruit and vegetables, potatoes, ornamentals, nursery plants and other areas of horticulture.

Partnership Horticulture

We create the conditions for increased competitiveness and growth through innovation, new ways of thinking and collaboration.

Our activities include research and development projects, developing businesses and markets, promoting regional development, organising seminars and producing newsletters.
