In the world of marketing terms such as data mining, AI or machine learning have gained a solid foothold. But their increasing use in horticulture is quite new. Not so strange, since the sector demands new business models in order to realize the transformation from green fingers to data management in the greenhouse. The nice thing is that it’s possible. Let us explain why.
Optimizing plants is a grower’s daily task. Many growers make frequent use of Wageningen University’s knowledge for it. Professor Leo Marcelis has been researching plants in greenhouse horticulture at Wageningen University in the Netherlands.
Less soil, less water, less fertiliser, lower CO2 emissions, but a significantly higher yield. That’s precision agriculture. Stone wool substrates play a key role in this. When plants have their roots deep in the stone wool you can regulate the growth process in the best possible way. This is one of the sustainability benefits of cultivating plants on stone wool. But there are others too!
