    The last two years' average financial results in Dutch horticulture have been rather negative. In many regions authorities are concerned about the future of horticulture in their region and wonder how they could have a positive effect on the development of horticulture firms. Therefore, they need good insight into the actual position of the horticultural holdings and the perception of the entrepreneurs of their own situation. The possibilities to use the family-firm life cycle as a tool to develop this insight are analyzed. An inquiry was carried out among 52 horticultural family firms in a small region in the eastern part of the Netherlands. The stage of the firm in the cycle was chosen by the pollster based on her expertise from visiting all the firms and the results of the inquiry as to the age of the youngest entrepreneur, past investments, and investments plans. The distribution of holdings in different stages of the life cycle provided good insight into the position of different branches of horticulture in the investigated region and in the goals of the entrepreneurs. The use of the family firm life cycle was a suitable way to obtain quick insight into the situation and expected developments in the short run in a small region. Points for further research are the assessment of a stage to a firm and a distinction between family and firm life cycle.

    Operational management in pot plant production was investigated by means of system analysis and simulation. A theoretical framework for operational decision-making consisted of elaboration decisions, progress decisions, and adoption decisions. This framework was incorporated in a pot plant nursery model, which simulated the implementation of a given tactical production plan under uncertainty. In this model, crop growth as well as price formation (of the foliage plant Schefflera arboricola 'Compacta') were affected by randomly simulated exogenous conditions, which resulted in plant sizes and plant prices deviating from planning premises. Operational decision-making related to the adaptation of cultivation-schedules (and delivery patterns) in order to restore compatibility between plan and reality.

    Regression metamodelling was applied to analyze simulations results with respect to differences in annual net farm income due to operational decision-making, tactical planning, price variability, and the grower's attitude to operational price risk. All differences could be explained by individual decision events triggered by the strategy of operational management applied in the particular simulation.

    In conclusion, the applied methodology was successful in exploring the opportunities for operational management in pot plant production based on a rather normative approach and integrating theory from various scientific disciplines. Furthermore, simulation experimentation showed significant impact of operational management on the nursery's performance. Hence, the present study indicates several opportunities for beneficial support of operational management on pot plant nurseries.

    The economic effect of aversion to risk during tactical planning in pot plant production.

    Acta Horticulturae 295 (1991). - ISSN 0567-7572 - p. 203 - 207.
    Two risk avers strategies are applied during tactical planning in pot plant production. Production risk should be reduced by an extra optional week added to the cultivation-schedule and price risk should be reduced by a staggered selling-schedule. However, the effect of these risk avers strategies after a simulated implementation of tactical plans is limited. The first strategy results in a lower financial result. And with respect to the second strategy no significant difference can be proved. Therefore other approaches should be developed and attention should be directed to operational management. Futhermore, the present study shows the relation between the financial result and the efficiency of space utilization.

    The elaboration of a crop growth model for pot plant production which takes account of the physiological processes controlling growth and yet is suitable for management purposes is described. The parameters of the model are specified for Schefflera arboricola cv. Compacta using previously published data. An example is given to demonstrate the application of the model and the value and potential of the model are discussed.
