Range of digital technologies
Recording or Mapping technologies, Robotic Systems or Smart Machines

Target stakeholders
Family owned greenhouse of 2 hectares (growers, farmers, etc.)

Short description
Digital solution consists of four parts: 1) Crop Strategy, 2) Cultivation Profilers, 3) Operational Controller and 4) Crop registrations and sensors. Those digital solutions will be adapted and implemented step by step in the whole greenhouse processes, activities and farm operations towards achieving TC’s major goals.

Major goals
The main goal is to go from a subjective approach (observation and interpretation by a human) to an objective approach (measuring by sensors and interpretation by models/algorithms). Ultimately to support growers in their daily decision making, growing more stable and predictable, and to increase the yield.
