Digital monitoring of plant nursery cultivation

nurset is an IoT system for monitoring the cultivation of plants in nurseries. It consists of an electronic setup of sensors and connectivity devices for gathering and transmitting data, and a web portal for viewing insights. It enables you to create reports, set up automatic alarms, record agronomic treatments and manage all relevant documentation. It also measures plant health and growth and can keep control of parameters relating to your nursery’s irrigation and fertigation. Finally, it allows you digitise documents relating to records of agronomic treatments, by means of a digital campaign notebook.
nurset is the ideal tool to achieve high efficiency standards and environmental and economic sustainability, by optimising the use of input factors and reducing waste.

Benefits of nurset

  1. Growth optimisation
  2. Continuous monitoring of plant health
  3. Continuous monitoring of consumption and system functionality
  4. Alarm system with e-mail or text message alerts in the event of anomalies
  5. Digital control of agronomic treatments
  6. Simple and intuitive portal, accessible from any device (desktop, tablet and smartphone)

How it works

Cultivation monitoring

Nurset uses sensors installed near the plant stock. This simple and non-invasive installation allows monitoring for any arrangement of beds in your nursery. The dedicated sensors do not alter or compromise plant growth. Energy is provided by a solar panel.

Thanks to its set of installed sensors, Nurset is able to measure and record:

    • substrate data: humidity, salinity, soil temperature and irrigation time
    • environment data: wind speed and direction, temperature

These measurements are sent via GSM or Wi-Fi by the nurset box, which is connected to the sensors, to a cloud platform that enables you to manage data remotely. Once you enter your dedicated web portal, you can view real-time or historical data, as well as consult easy-to-read graphs or export reports. In the alarms section of the portal, you can set the threshold values for the measured parameters and receive notifications via e-mail or text message when the critical values are reached.

System monitoring

Thanks to an array of sensors, installed in a minimally invasive way in technical housing units such as a pump room, Nurset is capable of detecting:

  • water consumption
  •  energy consumption
  • pre- and post-filter pressure
  • amount of fertiliser in the fertigation tank

The real-time and historical data can be consulted on the web portal, allowing for analysis by means of graphs or reports. The alarms function allows you to set threshold values for receiving e-mails or text messages when an anomaly occurs.

Campaign notebook

This feature is a quick and simple way to check and record all activities related to agronomic interventions and phytosanitary treatments carried out daily by assistants.

In this way it is possible to keep track of all conducted interventions, integrating the automatically detected data with the specific agronomic treatment data.

Use cases

Monitoring of Photinia Red Robin cultivation (9×9 pot)

Vettori Giovani Piante Italy

Young plants must establish a good root system in a short growth time


Monitoring of Liquidambar cultivation 35L Container

Vannucci Piante Italy

Growing Liquidambar in containers is important to ensure a good and regular supply of water


Thuja Plant cultivation
