    When delivering flower seeds, it is very important that the customer knows what percentage of the seeds gives usable plants. Until recently, this so called usable was determined manually. With the purchase of the GA-box from AgriData Innovations, that belongs to the past. By automating the process, the usable is now even more reliable.

    "In the past, we could only rely on our green fingers. Now we can complement that knowledge with reliable data," says Sander Middelburg of Leen Middelburg Chrysanthemums. At the location in Maasdijk - and at some other locations of Zentoo - they are busy monitoring the crop using ADI's vision technology; the data is then integrated into Delphy's growth models. Middelburg: "If we understand the chrysanthemums better, we can make better cultivation decisions."

    The Challenge?: Finding a better lighting solution for cannabis growth capable of providing even lighting to all parts of the plant. The Hortiv Solution: After a number of steps combining development and on-site trials together with the GREENKOM team, Hortiv delivered lamps with the special features needed for more efficient production of medical cannabis. The new lamps require less power, produce less heat, and provide more precise lighting. The Result: Thanks to even lighting, the plants’ production rate is higher, their flowers are more uniform, and all this takes place with lower power consumption for both lighting and cooling.

    The Challenge: To find the right lighting to be installed inside the growing device, that will be suitable for home use - safe and efficient. The Hortiv Solution The HORTIV solution was chosen for 2 reasons, 1. The strong local presence of the distributor and its ability to give quick and comprehensive customer support 2. A good cost - effective ratio The Result: AGWA’s customers are enjoying a great product. Precise lighting at a reasonable price plays a great role in the final result - all features which competitors were not able to offer.

    The Challenge: Plantae’s researchers were looking for a system that would allow flexibility when implementing varied lighting regimes in the growth rooms in order to study the reaction of plants to different growing conditions. The Hortiv Solution: The answer was to install two systems in parallel: The first steup provides flexibility for Plantae to test and find the optimal conditions required for growing the various tissue cultures in their collection. The second one, in which the composition of the light is predetermined and supports previously calibrated plant tissue culture growing protocols. The Result: Based on these observations, Plantae formulated precise work protocols needed to reliably produce a wide range of plants in cultures.

    The Challenge: While building its new tissue culture lab, RCK was looking for lighting with the sufficient spectrum and wavelength, but that would not take up too much space or emit too much heat. The Hortiv Solution: HORTIV’s controllable product solutions covered the entire range of parameters that RCK required for its research, and did so despite space constraints. The Result: The lab is new and so far a solution has been found to control the lighting environment for its research experiments, which no company other than Hortiv was able or willing to develop for them.
