Introductie stagiair Lisanne Machielsen

6 juni 2017
Hallo allemaal!
Ik ben Lisanne Machielsen, 1e-jaars student aan de HAS hogeschool. Ik volg de opleiding Bedrijfskunde & Agribusiness en loop op dit moment een oriëntatiestage. Dit doe ik bij Kwekerij Aardam in Aarlanderveen. Dit bedrijf levert uitgangsmateriaal van tropische planten. Dit is voor mij heel leerzaam en interessant. Ik zou graag wat nieuwe dingen willen leren op het gebied van logistiek, marketing en economie. Dit is de eerste keer dat ik in aanraking kom met deze sector. Zelf woon ik namelijk op een melkveebedrijf.

The test is to be conducted for making good quality young plants and to satisfy our customers.

Hardiness zones

September 9th 2015

Hardiness zones maps are used to determine if a specific plant can be grown in the climate of a specific location. They are used by gardeners as well as professional growers. Hardiness zones were firstly used by the department of agriculture(USDA) in the United States but today also widely used in the rest of the world. Hardiness zones are based on the average minimum temperature of the area which is determined by the locations elevation, latitude and proximity to the coast The scale is ranging from the coldest zone 0A to the warmest zone 12B, each divided by 10 degrees Fahrenheit.

Hardiness zones are a great indicator to determine if a plant species is suitable for an area but one should be aware that average minimum temperature is not the only factor that influence plant survival. Important factors like summer heat, extreme temperature drops, precipitation or snow coverage are not included in the hardiness scale and should always be added to gain the best insight in an area.

Flora Holland Trade Fair, a well visited Fair in a positive atmosphere.

3rd of december 2014

During the Flora Holland Trade Fair from the 5th until the 7th of November the whole sales team of Aardam has experienced a positive atmosphere among the Dutch growers. Mainly, because of the many Market requests for finished products, which gave a positive signal to our business relations. The Flora Holland Trade Fair was a great success for Aardam. Especially the Cordyline’s: Pink Passion , Can Can and Jive attracted a lot of attention to our stand. Dracaena Burly certainly took up a central position and we received many compliments from growers of the Southern countries. We had the opportunity to meet and greet many business relations from different Countries. Also from several producers we noticed a decreasing line in demands. During the week of the Flora Holland Trade Fair many regular clients visited our company. For a meet and greet, a viewing or to check on their ordered plants. We have also noticed clearly that our subsidiary company, Tropical Seeds, pops more and more into view as a seed supplier when it concerns far destinations and professional growers who control the germination process of our products themselves.
