Why The NETHERLANDS is the World's AGRICULTURE leader? - VisualPolitik EN

  • Published on Jun 27, 2018
  • 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.

    Another reason for large investments in agriculture research was a big famine(De Hongerwinter) in the Netherlands during the second world war. This let the Dutch realize that it was important to improve their agriculture. This is also one of the reasons that between the cities of The Hague, Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Utrecht(called the Randstad) a large part is reserved for agriculture( it's called "Het groene hart"( green heart)).
    PS Wageningen University is a beautiful university. I am a proud student!

    I have spoken to several pensioners that worked in the agricultural sector during 70,80,90,2000 three additional things needs to be added to your report. 1) the Dutch worked heavily on the supply chain towards product. Eg. how to help factories produce just-in-time effective yoghurt or potato chips, or supplying pork effectively to all sectors and help them make their product from prosciutto to supplying cuts to supermarket or butchers. 2) the investment in an efficacious sales force in foreign countries. The amount of lobbying, people trained and use of royal influence was a top priority. Because of the language and small population Dutch everywhere network and help find contact and solutions. 3) logistics and transport. With Schiphol flowers (not really fair that this is added to the agricultural numbers) are exported daily and Rotterdam offers a link to Europe and the entire world. A side effect is for example the banana import an export in Rotterdam, although nothing is grown here it contributes to the agricultural total government numbers.

    There is a price to pay. It is called the environment. Under glass agriculture needs heating in winter. That costs a lot of natural gas (CO2 emission). All the livestock eats food that is made from stuff grown in Asia on a very detrimental way. The soil has so much nutricions in it, we can last for hundreds of years. It is almost burning the plants and spoiling our water. Ammonia emissions is a real problem in some regions (pigs). And pumping away the water from the peat, shrinks it down by 90%, lowering a already sinking country even faster. With sea level rise, the Netherlands will cease to exist with the current technical possibilities in one or two centuries anyway.

      CO2 comes (mostly) from (local) industries producing it, so that's a win-win situation: the CO2 isn't released into the atmosphere and also gets used to make money via the agriculture business. Yes, Dutch intensive agriculture has more issues on overproducing unwanted stuff, but one's waste in another one's need and by that, opportunity to make more money! ;-)

  • Charles van der Hoog

    There are two factors overlooked. There is no reason why other countries would not be big in agriculture also. In Spain, Italy, France and Greece, the natural circumstances are more advantageous than in The Netherlands but in those countries there are landlords, landowning families and criminal organizations that destroy every incentive to do something fruitful. Add to that the intense corruption and the disdain for technology and trade in Italy and Spain and the backward way of thinking in Spain and Greece, and the disastrous political gridlocks in France, and you have a different explanation.
    Also, in The Netherlands, people cooperate and billionaires and old families do not control the country. Compare that to Spain, potentially the richest country in Europe in an agricultural sense, but held firmly into 16th century backwardness by families like Santander and some idiot good-for-nothings in Madrid. Italy does not really exist as a whole. Italy has competing areas. The south is totally different from the north and its backwardness is financially compensated by the various mafia groups. The revenue of the criminal organization called Ndrangeta in the area of Naples alone is only surpassed by the Italian oil & gas company ENI. The governments in Italy do nothing effective to fight criminal organizations, only a couple of honest crime fighters do. In such areas, one cannot achieve anything in agriculture because agriculture is highly visible and therefore vulnerable to people with criminal intent.

    Drones do not prevent initial infection, the are used to speed up the discovery of the disease before it spreads and treat accordingly. What most arable farmers do is true prevention they spray for the disease before they even get it. But that increases cost but it solidifies yield potential and income.

  • Adam Porter

    Oh my dear God. I know for a fact that antibiotic use is governed very strictly in the Netherlands but not because farmers don't require them, they just aren't allowed to use them. They are trying to develop cows less susceptible to udder infections by basically letting cattle with higher susceptibility to die out or be culled off. And even then there is no guarantee a cow with a lower chance of developing infection won't get one. the rest of us play it safe and use antibiotics to safeguard against a life threatening infection. Once you've seen a dozen cattle die from e-coli from not using long acting antibiotics to protect them over the dry period you won't do it again.

    That's great except in the case of say dairy products the Netherlands have a much higher cost of production. They are the most in debt dairy farmers in Europe on a per cow basis. It's nearly 10000 euro per cow average in debt. They are great innovators but we'd all be if we didn't care about making money.

    I feel slighty tilted. As a lab worker i feel you do not know the sheer volume of what farmers and factories send in to the privatised labs.
    To give an idea of how extensive we check the soil, cattle food or even manure. We can point out what a crop might lack in the soil. What hay will give in expected growth in cattle. Or even what kind of dung will be produced based on its hay and water.

    thats because greece is bankrupt and get money from the european union what the european coutnries pay. we the netherlands payed the most. we always pay the most. also farmers get almost nothing from the stuff they grow. Farmers almost cant live from the agriculture anymore. its becoming harder and harder. its the companies they sell it to that earns the most. its really sad.

    Videos like these that make me believe that Mondialism isn't a curse but a huge chance.
