RESEARCH & EDUCATION

The productivity and growth of a crop depends on the climate in which it is grown, with the optimum balance of every aspect of photosynthesis, the crop will have increased productivity and growth.

An integrated horticultural control systems will allow you to control and create this optimum climate. It will do so in the most efficient way, by managing the water and energy systems.

Accurate control of the greenhouse climate gives the ability to grow healthy crops at an optimum energy efficiency.

Business management information can also be provided by using a crop harvest registration and analysis system. This gives great insight into labour management and efficiency, the volume and quality of fruit being grown, but also registers any pests and diseases trends and locations. By using the data that is available from the horticultural process and data registration systems, the glasshouse manager has a very useful tool to help him make the right short and long term decisions.
