Economies of scale in Dutch greenhouse production

, : Economies of scale in Dutch greenhouse production. Acta Horticulturae (77): 93-98

An Empirical Research on Scale Economies and Chain Economies in Emergency Rooms in Dutch Hospitals.

Besides identifying economies of scale of ERs, we also focus on chain eco...

In greenhouse farming economies of scale are not due to the division of labour, mechanization and bargaining power. The main sources of economies of scale are lower costs of farm (equip...
