Economic intensity - Arable farming

Cultivation most intensive in clay areas

Areas with relatively large amounts of intensive arable farming crops in the Netherlands are the clay areas in the south-western part of the country, the province of Flevoland, the Wieringermeer region and the Wadden Sea coastal area. These clay areas have fertile soil that is highly suited to the cultivation of arable crops. Traditionally, starch potatoes have been cultivated in the northern peat farming areas while grains have been cultivated in the Oldambt region, located even further north. Both crops are more extensively cultivated, and often provide less money than seed potatoes or ware potatoes, for instance.
