The financing of new holdings in glasshouse production

Acta Horticulturae (55): 231-239
The financing of new holdings in glasshouse production
This paper gives the results of a survey carried out among 136 young growers who started a horticultural holding in the main greenhouse districts of the Netherlands, during 1972-73. 77% of them took over their father's business, 16% took over a non-parental holding, and 7% started a completely new nursery. Average capital held before takeover was fl. 43.212. Those who took over family businesses often acquired them at considerably less than their market value.
