Dijkhuizen drops to number 16 in AgriTop 50

There are now fifteen more influential people than Board Chairman Aalt Dijkhuizen in Dutch agriculture, according to the Agriarisch Dagblad's AgriTop50 list.

A couple of supermarket bosses, who are increasingly influential in agriculture and horticulture, overtook Dijkhuizen. His high ranking is due to the many boards he is on, his network, and the respect he commands in agriculture. There is only one woman among the 20 most influential people in agribusiness, but she does top the list: Minister of Agriculture Gerda Verburg.
