Horticulture is becoming more and more a precision science. Sensors help you make the right decisions using crop-level data.
Make the right choices based on real-time information viewed on your smartphone, tablet or desktop. Follow the crop conditions and get a picture of the root environment of your plants, which until recently has been something of a ‘black box’.
Sensors allow you to respond more quickly to critical situations. Increase productivity, reduce risks and save valuable energy and water using wireless CARA MET sensors for greenhouse horticulture.
Saint-Gobain Cultilene developed the CARA MET sensor in collaboration with SOWNet technologies | SenseNL. Former WUR researcher Dr Max Hilhorst is the initiator of this sensor technology.
The CARA MET sensor for horticulture measures the water content, EC (salt content) and temperature in the substrate slab. This allows growers to further optimize their irrigation and fertilization strategy, resulting in higher crop yields and optimal water and energy usage. This CARA sensor is specially calibrated for measuring in stone wool substrate slabs. Cultilene uses the LetsGrow.com dashboard for visualizing the CARA MET sensor data.
