Welcome to AgTech Talent on Tour

Powered by: TU Delft AgTech Institute, KeyGene, Koppert Biological Systems and Koppert Cress

We have noticed that companies in the international horticulture and agricultural industry are very excited to meet talented and technical TU Delft master students. At the same time, we noticed excitement with TU Delft master students to explore and connect with companies in the horticultural and agricultural sector. This tour is to bring both worlds together.

During the tour we will visit 3 companies, Keygene, Koppert Biological Systems and Koppert Cress to inspire you with some of the most innovative frontrunners in the sector.

  • KeyGene is the go-to plant research company for technological innovations for crop improvement. Its facilities have state-of-the-art laboratories focused on next generation sequencing, cell & tissue culture and plant phenotyping. KeyGene’s greenhouses and growth room facilities are equipped for advanced plant & food research.


  • Koppert Biological Systems supports growers in more than 100 countries to successfully apply sustainable growing methods to improve plant health (above and under ground). It creates natural enemies such as bumblebees for pollination, microbials, and biostimulants that support, protect, and strengthen crops as alternative for chemical. Improving plant health both above and underground.
  • Koppert Cress is always on the lookout for natural, innovative ingredients which chefs can use to intensify the flavour, aroma, or presentation of their dishes; products that meet the increasingly stringent requirements of restaurants worldwide. The assortment consist of freshly-sprouted seedlings (cresses) and other edible leaves and flowers (specialties) from 100% natural aromatic plants.
