If we ask you who do you think is the World’s biggest potato exporter, you might answer America or maybe China… Those are big countries, with good soil and favourable climate. But despite all of this, the right answer would be the Netherlands, commonly known as Holland. In fact, they are the biggest food exporter right after the United States.
This is surprising given that Netherlands is a really small, densely populated, wealthy country. All this features would make a country move away from the primary sector. They almost have no farming land and, having some of the most successful multinational corporations, it is counterintuitive that somebody would choose a job in a farm that one on the corporate world.
Nonetheless, we can say Netherlands is the Silicon Valley of agriculture. Or, as they like to call themselves, the Food Valley. Thanks to the famous University of Wageningen, this country has combined rocket science with farming.
But how did Netherlands achieve this success? What are the main keys for Dutch agriculture? What’s the secret of this little country? In this video, we will tell you all of that.

Random question…. do you highlight your hair?

Haha, roundup commercial on a permaculture channel
I love the vibes fellow earth planter. thanks for the great vid
how does this work for really cold winters?
Hi, I have a old bath tub I want to use as my worm bed. It does drain so I think it would work. Any suggestions on what to do/Not do?
Thanks for the video. Good 411 good vibes. I wasnt aware Worms were "verocious eaters". Kinda makes you rethink things doesnt it?
Great video my friend, I really am considering doing some permaculture classes.
You might want to put a few inches of light colord and light weight mulch over the weed fabric at the top. Black will heat up really hot.
Man, please check the data before you sell this to thousands of people
100 from now who owns siberia then will be the next
I live in the netherlands and NONE of this is right!
A dutch company is instrumental for almost all computer chips production in the world, ASML..
Typically Dutch, understated but extremely effective and efficient. God bless them, where would we be without their input. Respect to the Netherlands.
Could you forward Ceasar Bravo's contact details as I have recently moverd to Gran Canaria and would like to find out more about goats – please
And yet they can't play football and win a world cup.
Proof that we don't need loads of illegal immigrants to feed America.
i grew up around farmers and while i life in a city right now, i still miss the farms, due to that i made plans to grow my own vegetables etc. once we save enough money we will go back to the farm lands and start our own little farm with cows, chickens and grow our own vegetables and fruit.
Greetings from Germany!
We are also the biggest pig exporting country in the world!
Which leads to an abundance of pig manure ; most crops and grasslands are fed with Pig shit.
600 years ago the carrots were white. The Dutch, by selection over decades, "created" the orange carrots we have now.
As for the purple carrots, l do not know their origin, but l have eaten some and they are as good as the orange and white and yellow ones, but they are fragile: they wither fast.
I add that the Dutch were judicious to refuse to ban cannabis when the USA imposed a world-wide ban on it through lies. They are leader in the domain, even though Spain, better and better as years elapse, may soon take the place.
Hi Simon, we were wondering why your beard is strobing throughout this video? It was very distracting.
Your analysis is one-sided. What are the environmental effects ?
Lekkere krieltjes jonguh.
Average farm size just 7 ha!!!!!! I think not! It must be more like 40 ha. Granted…greenhouse farms are usually just a couple of ha, but arable farms are usually much larger (60- 250 ha) and dairy farms usually are about 40 ha! Check your facts Simon. And another thing. Not all the food exported from Holland has been produced in Holland. A lot gets imported, sometimes processed and then exported again. A good example is the flower auction in Aalsmeer where not only Dutch produced flowers, but also flowers from all over Europe and even Africa are sold to European buyers and thus have to be exported again. Flowers aren't food, but they do count as agricultural produce.
Finally Wageningen Research, as my alma mater is called nowadays, also offers other than agricultural studies. Sociology, Landscaping, Forestry etc. And I got my MSc in biology there.
Awesome Video. But also realize that many Dutch farmers emigrated to countries like USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and set up there large farms (because the Netherlands was too small to expand). The Dutch farmers in the USA crossed the cow Friesian and Holstein into the best milk producing breed.
But their development to produce meat with stem cells is really incredible. With 1 cow you can produce all the needed meat in a country.
The cooperation between Dutch and foreign students gives them the power and knowledge to do miracles. Wait and see…..
"the Netherlands, also known as Holland". let me guess, "US, also known as New York" and "Japan, also known as Tokyo?"
I didn’t realize that the Dutch export more food than the biggest western European countries including Spain, Italy, France, Germany and the United Kingdom. The Dutch are among the most industrious and entrepreneurial people in the world! Now they’ve built the Silicon Valley of agriculture to bring farming into the 21st century!
Dutch agricultural engineers should help teach the rest of the world feed over 10 billion people. They should apply their techniques to help construct greenhouses for future colonies on the moon and Mars where managing scarce resources like water and nutrients will be crucial.
