As the days get shorter and darker, the growing season is coming to a close, or growers will soon switch to growing with artificial light. As a result of interviews with growers worldwide and continuous testing, Grodan has enhanced three features of its e-Gro in order to help optimize growing, plan better, and gain more insights into your targeted growing strategy.
Growing with artificial light is a very different type of growing, and turning on your lights is expensive. e-Gro helps improve data by adding the ability to adjust and update your light schedule per day to your specific greenhouse. In each module, there are options to view information based on artificial lighting or natural lighting. Data will be calculated throughout the rest of light-specific data on all modules, such as time, WC level, EC level, etc, and optimizes the calculations, graphs, and recommendations.
A popular trend in the Benelux, and becoming increasingly important in other markets, is benchmarking with other companies. To support growers in this, the e-Gro now has the feature of advanced comparing. You can now learn from one another and easily see if you are on the right track.
