CO-OPERATION OF HORTICULTURAL ENTERPRISE IN THE FIELD OF PRODUCTION

P. Bleijenberg
Those who are occupied with the co-operation of enterprises wonder why only a few horticultural enterprises have chosen for a forme of co-operation in production till now. What's the reason that this did not develop further? Does it fail the grower to support in this field? Is the grower individually attuned or is it sometimes a new phase in development? For the sale of his products the grower has chosen for a forme of co-operation by means of the auction system, because he has no time available for this purpose. In agriculture and horticulture co-operations have been founded for the purchase of machines, implements, fertilizers, pesticides etc. In a part of the production sometimes a co-operation has been achieved by collective use of machines and buildings.

It, however, is striking, that for the factor labour less formes of co-operation are known. Indeed an incidental co-operation is found by illness or holidays, in which case help is offered by mutual agreements. Hence, co-operation is not new for the commercial grower, but supplies a new development in production.
