Choosing the right automation technology.
The modern greenhouse utilizes technology to automate many daily tasks associated with a bustling grow operation. It can be confusing and overwhelming to decide on which system is right for your specific needs and goals. Whether you need to replace an older automation system that can no longer provide the dependability you need, or you're interested in new technological advancements of fully cloud-based automatic grow systems, here are the basics.
Which Grow Light Is Right For You?
There's no doubt that the sun provides farmers with the natural sunlight needed to grow vigorous, healthy plants. But severe weather can be a deterrent to growing crops outdoors during harsh winter or summer temperatures. There's been a trend to move some crops inside, especially those with fast harvest cycles like lettuce and cannabis.
Increase yields and save valuable resources
Automated grow systems have been used for many years to keep labor costs down. Whether it's lighting, vents, or artificial intelligence, automation, and technology are capable of repeatable and predictable results. This allows growers to streamline previously time-consuming processes quickly and efficiently. Most automated greenhouse systems allow users to control their cultivation environment via an app on their smart devices.
Getting The Most From Your Environmental Controls
Greenhouse and indoor grow cultivation automation has changed how we grow in America and the world. Agricultural technology has taken the guesswork out of some of the most challenging aspects of commercial cultivation. One of the essential aspects of greenhouse automation is having quality, accurate sensors to monitor the aspects of your grow operation that you want to automate.
Adding Tech Hardware and Software To Your Grow
Greenhouse computers and equipment have transformed how we grow. The IoT is pushing the future of farming to the next level, and smart agriculture is becoming more commonplace among growers. High tech cultivation is quickly becoming the standard thanks to agricultural automation, all operating on your greenhouse computer.
How to Choose Your Environmental Controls
As a grower, there are plenty of things to consider when planning your strategy, and the grow room controller is one of the most critical pieces of equipment you purchase. The environment in your grow room is one of the most important aspects of your business. Creating the ideal environment is crucial for plant health, but maintaining this environment indoors can be difficult and time-consuming.
