cornus controversa, stock monitoring, rotting


Cornus Controversa plants in 55 litre containers grow well with low irrigation levels. Any overwatering must be avoided because, in addition to being economically inefficient, it can cause rotting that is harmful to plant health.


By measuring humidity in real-time, it is possible to calibrate irrigation in order to keep the levels within a certain limit, avoiding critical situations for plant health and eliminating wastage of water, fertiliser and energy.
