For the growth of young plants, it is essential for them to establish a good root system in a short growth time, and to make the most efficient possible use of the main input factors such as water and fertilisers.
By measuring the temperature, humidity and salinity of the substrate in real-time, it is possible to calibrate a homogenous irrigation of the growing plot and control the amount of fertilisers released into each pot. Critical values of the measurements can also be quickly detected as warning signs of plant damage.
