WHY IT MATTERS

The world population continues to increase and climate conditions continue to change. These factors not only make successful crops ever more important, but an even greater challenge, too. To grow more eciently, use water and energy optimally and produce vegetables, fruit, and ornamental plants safely, you need to use the right technology. The number of covered and irrigated crops have increased drastically over the last few years, and this trend will continue for the foreseeable future.

HOW IT WORKS

CROP CONTROL SOFTWARE

IRRIGATION
Water is essential for any crop. With the irrigation modules, you can adjust the right amount of water at the right time, to the perfect combination for your crop. No more dehydration or poor root development.
 
CLIMATE
The environment conditions are important for the performance of your crop. With the climate modules, you can simply control and optimize temperature, air humidity and airow. Now your crop can develop itself optimally with minimal risks of diseases.
 
PHOTOSYNTHESIS
Photosynthesis is the starting point of every crop. With the photosynthesis modules, you can control and optimize light and CO2 to have the right balance in your photosynthesis process. This results in a higher quality of your crop and a higher yield.

ENERGY
The realization of an optimal climate is indispensable without energy. With the energy modules, you can control your boilers in the most e- cient way.
 
WATER
At the moment your crop needs irrigation, you need to have a water system in place to supply it. With the water modules, you can provide your irrigation valves with the right amount of water and fertilizers.
 
PLATFORM
Photosynthesis is the starting point of every crop. With the photosynthesis modules, you can control and optimize light and CO2 to have the right balance in your photosynthesis process. This results in a higher quality of your crop and a higher yield.
