Your greenhouse produces a wealth of data and growers need to understand the value and power of all this digital information. Technology companies can use your data to develop cutting-edge automation services that make your business more efficient and competitive. Sharing your greenhouse data, however, raises issues about cybersecurity, privacy and data ownership; moreover, categories of data sharing are distinct and raise particular challenges.
Predicting the harvest yield of vegetables in commercial hydroponic greenhouses today is a time consuming and inaccurate, manual process. Weekly estimates for tomato yields, for instance, are often over or under the actual yield by 20% or more; errors are often worse for peppers. Your Grow Team spends between one to three days a week making harvest forecasts.
