PCS Ornamental Plant Research

PCS Ornamental Plant Research confirmed us for a field excursion on their site in Destelbergen. PCS is the tree nursery, floriculture & landscaping sector’s independent knowledge centre in Flanders. Our research, information and services focus on issues and problems in the tree nursery, floriculture and landscaping industry and are aimed at encouraging innovation among growers and landscapers.

The centre works closely with national and international research institutions, in order to make new knowledge quickly useful. PCS provides crop protection trials to support registration in ornamental plants, and informs growers on safe use, efficacy and plant safety for a wide variety of ornamental plants.

PCS is a founding member of Technopool Sierteelt, a partnership that brings together the entire research landscape in Flemish floriculture, and is an active partner in Agrolink, the Flemish research network for the agricultural and horticultural industry.

The Tour of Flanders Center is the place to be

“The Tour of Flanders, over 100 years of history packed in one interactive exhibition. Start your journey in 1913 with the heroic victory of Paul Deman and use our virtual reality setup to experience his adventures during the First World War. Relive legendary victories and get a taste of what it’s like to bump your way across cobble stones. The Centre of the Tour of Flanders tells the tale of many misfortunes and tears of joy. It shows how cycling evolved from heavy equipment to carbon light racing bikes and from Eddy Merckx to Peter Sagan. And, just for this special occasion, we have double world champion and all time legend Freddy Maertens available for a meet and greet.”
