Why monitoring production and quality is important
Due to the fast growing population and the increased concern for food safety, the demand for high quality food grows. This is in line with the needs of conscious consumers who want to know every detail about the origin of their food. A similar situation occurs with growing flowers; the need for efficient use of resources rises. it becomes more and more important for growers to responsibly deal with water and other growth factors like sunlight, ventilation, greenhouse temperature etc. This contributes to the need for high quality products that are grown efficiently.
Production and quality solutions for your company
The quality of the crop is largely dependent on the greenhouse climate. The advanced controls of the iSii process computer provide you with all the tools to optimize the growth climate in your greenhouse resulting in a high quality crop. Via the Hoogendoorn Analytics online platform we offer a harvest forecast based on Artificial Intelligence (AI). With this harvest forecast expected yields are calculated enabling growers to grow more systematically. The module gives you a forecast with 90% reliability. In addition, the Work-IT management information system can help you to optimize your production by providing insight in e.g. labor, production and crop heatlh. Work-IT allows you to monitor your personnel capabilities and to allocate tasks to employees more efficiently in line with the production targets.
