Real World Commercial Greenhouse Equipment
Hydroponic Irrigation Controllers Vs Our Greenhouse Automation Equipment
Let me do a little breakdown of commercial greenhouse equipment and what you should expect from the best in world class greenhouse automation.
Your current greenhouse irrigation system may be connected to your water supply or water tank reservoirs for your fertilizer feed system. Somewhere along the way you are probably mixing fertilizers into your water line and out to the crops. The problem with this system is that a lot of hand mixing or individual injectors are all being manually controlled and there is no central location for multiple feed formulas to be produced or any way for the actual irrigation to be monitored in a sufficient way.
With our world class greenhouse automation systems, you can create up to 10 feed formula programs with up to 48 irrigation values for multiple crops. You can monitor your water usage and set trigger set points when you feel the plants would need more water. As an example we have soil sensors set up on a wireless mesh network that would communicate back to the central greenhouse computer to trigger an irrigation when plants get too dry for instance. We are also monitoring Water Flow, EC and pH of the water and ensuring that the right nutrients get absorbed by the plants to ensure growth. The end result is you get a better production system and a large increase in yields for any crop benefiting from our software.
There is also reduction of plant loss that is caused by excess fertilizer, over watering or disease. It probably happens more than most growers like to admit, but keeping irrigation timers on too long or a broken irrigation valve (all monitored by our system), can cause major harm to the crop.
Commercial Greenhouse Growers can start to rest easy knowing the right amount of water and fertilizer is getting out to the crops daily and you are saving serious money on labor, fertilizer & water expense. You just need to invest in the right kind of greenhouse automation system. The perfect balance of fertilizer, EC and pH is all managed by the system, and this is where automation truly helps you stay in line with what the crop is looking for enhanced growth.
Ask yourself what is the right move for your greenhouse and make the right decision. What counts are the results you’ll now get from the crop after installing the system. The best hydroponic drip irrigation systems are the ones that are not complicated to use but offer amazing technology and deliver great results.
Our automation systems are created for large-scale growers but anyone can learn to run them as they are simple to operate.
