Rockwool supplier Grodan has brought their e-Gro software platform to the North American market.
Originally launched in the Netherlands during the HortiContact trade show, e-Gro went on to win the Concept Innovation award at GreenTech earlier this year.
With cloud solutions, Internet of Things (IoT), AI learning and big data, Grodan says that merging all of this information and analyzing it can be complex and time-consuming.
With e-Gro, all of this data is gathered in one place and can offer smart recommendations based on the root zone, climate, crop and harvest data.
“Growers are in control, with 24/7 visibility into the greenhouse environment, anywhere and everywhere, empowering them to make informed decisions to maximize their harvest,” according to the company’s release.
E-Gro can be linked to common climate computer systems and is available for smartphone, tablet and desktop.
