How Crop Controller works

Crop Controller represents a new approach to daily greenhouse management, moving beyond dashboards and reporting tools. It offers full decision automation, allowing growers to achieve optimal results without constant manual intervention.

By integrating climate and irrigation control, Crop Controller streamlines operations and maximizes efficiency, setting a positive new standard for growing crops.

Optimizing Your Unique Crop Strategy

We begin with a comprehensive kick-off meeting to understand your greenhouse’s specific requirements and objectives. This session serves as the foundation for tailoring Crop Controller to meet your exact needs and realize your goals.

Data Processing
with AI

Throughout the growth period, AI continuously uses all available data from greenhouse sensors, climate boxes, and meteo-data providers to forecast and optimize the climate and irrigation according to the crop strategy.

Calculating Climate and Irrigation Setpoints

Crop Controller handles execution by calculating climate and irrigation profiles every hour for 3 days ahead on a 5-minute levels. This ensures optimal temperature, radiation, and humidity while maintaining perfect water content levels, drainage, EC, and PH-levels for the full crop cycle.

Autonomous Climate Computer Control

Setpoints for all relevant installations are also calculated on a 5-minute level and sent to the climate computer without human interference. Growers can reduce climate computer work by an impressive 80%.

Autonomous Steering of Installations

Crop Controller autonomously steers the climate and irrigation installations very precise via the climate computer to achieve the targets defined by the grower.

Optimize and
Execute Loop

Connected sensors and slab scales measure climate and root zone conditions. These measurements are input for the continuous, autonomous ‘optimize-and-execute loop,’ ensuring and maintaining optimal plant conditions in the most cost-efficient way.
