Data Driven Growing is a concept we hear a lot about. How can greenhouse horticulture growers make use of this?
LetsGrow.com and Gearbox Innovations work together to support growers in this. LetsGrow.com combines plant physiology and Artificial Intelligence (AI) as a basis for smart solutions. When this knowledge is brought together with image analyses and the knowledge of AI from Gearbox, this results in new insight for the grower, according to both companies.
Peter Hendriks (Managing Director LetsGrow.com): "By combining image and data in a smart way, new insights arise about how plants react to circumstances. By anticipating on this, growers can achieve better yields."
Data Gearbox visible in LetsGrow.com
Gearbox supplies high-quality cameras and sensors, and makes smart software which automatically monitors the growth and quality of plants and fruits or flowers. Moreover, the company can robotize (crop) manipulations as needed. The data generated by the Gearbox products (GearSense and GearVision), is being made visible in LetsGrow.com.
Because LetsGrow.com discloses multiple data sources in nurseries, growers have the option to make this image analysis and sensor data insightful in their own dashboard besides the data of, for example, the climate computer. This dashboard is completely set up for the needs of the individual grower.
Besides displaying the data, it is possible to analyse data in MyLetsGrow. For example, you can analyse the effect of extra light on the growth of the crop. Moreover, more profound analysis can be made, for example of the stress level of a crop.
Just like LetsGrow.com, Gearbox is also growing internationally. Gearbox supplies mostly to growers and breeders. Gearbox helps a grower or breeder also with more insight and optimization of growth and processes. Moreover, Gearbox automates and robotizes the monitoring and analysis of organic products and crops in dynamic environments. Gearbox selects on quality and development to optimize the growing process, save costs, and increase product quality.
LetsGrow.com and Gearbox Innovations can be found together at GreenTech (11, 12 and 13 June 2019) in stand 08.302.
