PlantVoice is a monitoring and control system which helps you realize the optimum greenhouse climate and irrigation strategy, based on plant needs. All data is presented at a glance via a customized visualization.
The Next Generation Growing defines the plant’s condition as the central concern. The PlantVoice program, that is developed for the iSii process computer, focusses on the three plant balances: the energy, water, and assimilates balance. These balances are the center of each plant growth model. PlantVoice allows you to keep your plants ‘in balance’, and therefore enables the plant to grow optimally and you achieve optimum production and quality. With PlantVoice, you adjust the irrigation cycle to the plants’ needs and you realize the ideal greenhouse climate for your crops.
Irrigation based on crop evaporation
One of the newest insights of The Next Generation Growing is that the activity of the plant is determined by the energy balance. Energy supplied from different sources contributes to the plant activity and therefore to the level of evaporation. With our software you can include multiple energy sources, such as lighting, radiation and heating, and calculate the total amount of evaporation energy. This way, you can adjust the irrigation cycle based on the plants’ needs and you irrigate more specifically and more efficiently.
