About Blue Radix
Blue Radix is the independent specialist and market leader in autonomous growing. The company creates automated intelligence for almost all daily decisions and actions in greenhouses. Due to the rapid growth of the world population, there is an increasing need for healthy and safe food. Greenhouse production is being scaled up around the world, but the declining number of experienced growers is a limiting factor. Blue Radix offers solutions to these global challenges: AI-based services that support growers with a ‘digital brain’ for their greenhouses. The Crop Controller service enables growers to manage significantly more hectares and increase yields while reducing costs. For more information check out our webpage on autonomous growing.
