Kees van Vliet has joined Wireless Value as account manager of Agri. He brings his knowledge and experience of the substrate world, plant breeding, and breeding to the company, which specializes in wireless sensors. "Together with a driven team of specialists, I will continue to help build on the success of this innovative club," says Kees.
In recent years, Kees was active in cucumbers at BASF / Nunems. There, too, research into data-driven growing played an important role. A great time, and now it's time for a new challenge in which data once again plays an important role.
"With an extensive range of wireless sensors, Wireless Value makes the growing environment a little smarter every day," Kees explains. "That offers more insight into cultivation every moment and enables better cultivation decisions to be made, with at the bottom line: a better result."
Wireless Value is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year and has been serving horticulture, among others, since 2008. A recent development by the company includes a solar-powered ventilation unit as an extension to their existing wireless climate sensor. The solar panel directly powers the fan, so the temperature of the wireless climate sensor is not affected by solar radiation. According to the manufacturer, this improves the accuracy of temperature measurements in locations where sunlight can affect the temperature of the sensor housing.
