DIVERSIFICATION OF VEGETABLE CROPS AS AN ELEMENT OF A PATH POLICY: EXAMPLE OF THE NEDERLANDS

J. Vaudois
Dutch diversification of vegetable crops policy is often quoted as an example in foreign countries. Since the beginning of the 1970ies, this policy has constituted one of the components of the ambitious and coherent program relative to modernization and market development in the vegetables producing and marketing system, when faced with the evolution of supply and demand on the european markets.

Originally conceived as an element of a collective strategy, the diversification policy in vegetable crops needs the participation of all the professional and institutional partners engaged in the working of the system. The registered successes prove the efficiency of this system. they point out the leading role played in it by the professional organizations.
