LetsGrow.com has developed the Climate Monitor. The LetsGrow.com Climate Monitor tells you if there is a reason to adjust the cultivation control. The Climate Monitor allows you to monitor the climate real-time and summarizes the factors that determine the climate.

Climate is a combination of different growing factors. Each radiation level has certain thresholds for these factors for an optimal climate. You can determine the thresholds for temperature, humidity and CO₂ yourself to define your optimal climate.

 

climate monitor limits


The Climate Monitor shows if the optimal climate is realized, registers deviations and displays this in graphs and overviews. Via e-mail notification you can automatically mail the deviations to yourself.
The Climate Monitor enables growers of all crops to follow the important growing factors temperature, humidity and CO₂ in relation to the radiation (PAR).

Collecting data out of different systems and putting it next to each other to take sollid and well founded decisions. For many entrepeneurs this is a time consuming task. For many years, LetsGrow.com collects data out of differnt sources as climate computers, sensor units, machines and apps. And now we have a brand new addition: dasboards that you can create yourself! With this dashboard, you can see the data you want at one single glance.

A plain insight
To create even more insight for our customers than before, we have developed a dashboard with which you can create your own graphs, tables and gauges. With these new indicaters, you can see immediately if everything goes according to plan.

It is possible to have several dashboards at the same time. For example, you can put the climate monitor of multiple locations in one dashboard, so you can see at a single glance at which location you need to pay attention first. Or you can place a heatmap of your location together with a graph showing information about heating and vents.
Dashboard

Free
'The dashboard is an addition that is avaible for all our customers', as Ton van Dijk, our sales managers tells. 'In conversations with our customers, we noticed that because there is a large amount of data people want to have a clear overview. With this dashboard we want to provide this overview. The customores who tested this new dashboard are very positive about it. The best thing about this new addition is that it is free available for all our customers, without additional costs.'

Support
Although setting up the dashboard is quite easy, we also give support to our customers with manuals, small video`s with instructions and we have a supportdesk. See manuals.

The Heatmap of LetsGrow.com provides new insight
LetsGrow.com has developed the heatmap to provide more insight into the differences in temperature and RH in a greenhouse. Climate fluctuations in the greenhouses are unwanted. It can lead to problems with the growth of the plants in "the corners of the greenhouses", which in turn can lead to differences in production and quality. Climate fluctuations can lead to molds or other diseases that can affect your plant. How can you prevent this?

 

Horizontal differences in temperature and RH
By this moment, a greenhouse has a limited amount of sensor units that are connected to the climate computer.
These sensor units measure the temperature, RH and the CO2. These units present the data as if the climate in a greenhouse is evenly spaced. However, recent research has shown that there are greater differences between temperature and RH in a greenhouse than has been thought earlier, according to Ton van Dijk, salesmanager LetsGrow.com

Insights in temperature
Since a few months, it is possible to show the data from all your sensor units in a heatmap.
With the data out of the sensor units we can make an overview of the temperature and relative air humidity in the greenhouse, even on a 5 minute basis. By showing these measurments as a movie, you can get a perfect insight into the temperature in your greenhouse.

 

Technical adjustments
we can make a 3D overview of the greenhouse, by hanging the sensor units at different heights in the greenhouse, for example between the plants, at the head of the plant and at the screens.
Ton van Dijk: "With the help of this measurments, we can seriously think about technical adjustments that are needed for the greenhouse, in order to optimise the climate in the greenhouse"

 

Sensor units
Letsgrow.com can collect, present and analyse the data of every sensor unit. In this way, the heatmap can be expanded by measurements of other systems. With this data, we can make correlations between the different measurements. By making these correlations, we can explain the different situations in your greenhouse and help you to prevent the plants from growth or quality differences, diseases or pests. Our goal is to give you a higher production with a better quality.

Van den Berg Est BV is the best grower of Hortensia in The Netherlands. Marjanne and Tom van den Berg won the Hortensia Award with their Hydrangea macrophylla Caipirinha®. Grower Tom van den Berg: “It all starts with balance.”

Marjanne and Tom van den Berg from Est started growing Hortensia’s for indoor and outdoor uses in 2004. Besides, their company Van den Berg Est BV is a high quality producer of Poinsettia and 1-year-plants. Every friday and saturday the products are being sold at the nursery.

Average vase life of over 35 days!

In week 12 Marjanne en Tom van den Berg admitted the Hydrangea macrophylla Caipirinha® for a test by Knowlede Centre for Product Quality Royal FloraHolland. Caipirinha is a new Hortensia with a distinctive colour. The Hortensia starts green, turns white and then again turns green.

The test was constisted of three phases: Transport (96 hour, 15ºC, packed, in a tray), Shop (72 hour, 20ºC, in a tray) and Consumer (840 hours/35 days). The result: a average vase life of over 35 days!

Three different variables

“At our nursery the plants are the starting point of all our decisions”, says Tom van den Berg. ” Throughout the year we use three different variables: energy, water and ‘assimalates’ of the plant. Therefor our stock is healthier and have more resisant and our customers can enjoy our plants much longer.”

Monitoring these balances is highly automated at Van den Berg Est BV. The company uses the Climate Monitor by LetsGrow.com. Yuri Alsemgeest of LetsGrow.com congratulated Van den Berg Est BV with a delicious cake.
