Winners of the GreenTech innovation awards were announced last week in Amsterdam, NL. Highlighting innovations in horticultural technology, the three-day global trade show drew 10,465 professionals from 112 countries and 477 exhibitors.

Out of 22 nominees, four winners emerged:

GreenTech Innovation Award

Autostix – Visser Horti Systems
