The wet bogs and flowering meadows of Drentsche Aa National Landscape create ideal conditions for marsh trefoil, a plant covered with pinkish-white blossoms that blooms in the spring. The park lies in the province of Drenthe. As you walk the trails in the park, look for orchids that rely on the wet environment for their survival. The deep blue berries of the juniper berry grow near boggy areas of the country. The plants thrive near the 60 bog pools that grow in Dwingelderveld National Park southwest of Drenthe. The most common tree growing in the Netherlands is the Scots pine. The identifying characteristics of the tree include an orange-brown bark and short bluish needles.
The Dutch agricultural sector is highly mechanised, and has a strong focus on international exports. It employs about 4% of the Dutch labour force but produces large surpluses for the food-processing industry and accounts for 21 percent of the Netherlands' total export value. The Dutch rank second worldwide in value of agricultural exports, behind only the United States, with exports earning €80.7 billion in 2014, up from €75.4 billion in 2012.
The Netherlands exports a quarter of all the world's tomatoes, and trade of one-third of the world's exports of chilis, tomatoes and cucumbers goes through the country. The Netherlands also exports one-fifteenth of the world's apples.
Aside from that, a significant portion of Dutch agricultural exports consists of fresh-cut plants, flowers, and flower bulbs, with the Netherlands exporting two-thirds of the world's total.
