AUTONOMOUS GROWING

Increase yield & reduce costs

Experienced growers are hard to find nowadays but more growers are needed. Because they need to control an increasingly extensive area due to increased scale of horticulture companies. Greenhouses are the perfect solution to feed an ever-growing population and produce flowers and plants for the world. But who will operate these greenhouses?

We offer smart data services to control greenhouses from a few compartments to tens of hectares. Now you can increase yield, reduce costs and minimize risks whilst keeping control. Greenhouse growers can easily connect their glass greenhouse and rely on proven world-class data models and experienced operators for integrated crop and energy management.

As of May 2020 Blue Radix will start giving online demo’s about autonomous growing. Do you want to register in advance? That’s possible! As soon as the new date of our demo is planned, you will receive an invitation from us.

Introducing the Crop Controller

autonomous greenhouse management

The Crop Controller data models control the greenhouse installations 24/7, supported by off-site operators with in-depth knowledge about crops, energy and data. The Crop Controller functions on multiple autonomy levels:

Growers can now focus on their strategy knowing that their operational processes in the greenhouse are managed at a high-quality level based on a solid technology platform.

Benefits of the Crop Controller

1

Higher yields with lower costs and usage of resources.

2

Limit your operational risks and ecological footprint.

3

Lower your dependency of crop and energy experts.

4

Assure continuity in knowledge of daily greenhouse operations.

How the Crop Controller works

Plant data is at the heart of our models aimed at steering towards a climate for optimal yield. The Crop Controller consists of three components:

Crop strategy

Planning of the climate strategy to calculate an optimal crop and climate strategy on a daily base.

Climate optimization

Calculating the optimal climate per 5 minutes, based on weather forecast, sensor and climate data and the crop strategy. The optimal climate includes temperature, humidity, carbon dioxide and required light levels.

Setpoint optimization

Calculating 5-minute setpoints for all installations in the greenhouse. The Crop Controller sends these setpoints directly to the installations and monitors the climate continuously.

These three components work as an integrated service to deliver fully autonomous climate control for vegetables and flowers in commercial greenhouses.

Our satisfied customers

Autonomous growing: 

“The amount of data to process is increasing every year. The Crop Controller is integrating data and automates and optimizes our greenhouse climate.”

Autonomous growing:

In good weather, everyone can grow tomatoes, the differences are made in changing circumstances. It is very  convenious that autonomous growing then takes over and optimizes.”
