Abstract Organic greenhouse horticulture (OGH) (i.e. the production in greenhouses or polytunnels) in the
EU should improve its sustainability, production and productivity. Emissions of nutrients and its
footprint should be reduced. Production and productivity are too low to meet the demand of the
society. The scientific challenges are to design sustainable irrigation and fertilization strategies, to
reveal the mechanisms of resilience, robustness and suppressiveness for the management of pests
and diseases, to integrate crop management, energy saving, renewable energy sources and new
techniques and combinations with other activities and business to realize climate neutral production.
This COST Action coordinates, strengthens and focuses the activities of the partners. It improves
the communication, offers a common agenda, more and better knowledge for less money, sharing
new techniques, an improved dissemination to OGH, basis for further collaboration in joint research
proposals and support in the development of EU standards for OGH.
