In today's fast-paced world of horticulture, there's a growing need to find smarter ways to grow crops sustainably and efficiently. With the population rising and environmental concerns, technology is playing a crucial role in optimizing our resources while still ensuring great yields from our crops.


One of the advanced technologies leading this transformation are intelligent greenhouse control systems, such as IIVO. IIVO uses Intelligent Algorithms to monitor and manage the greenhouse environment, all while conserving energy. By analyzing data from sensors and weather forecasts, they adjust variables like temperature and humidity to create the perfect conditions for plant growth.

What makes these algorithms truly remarkable is their ability to customize the greenhouse environment for each type of plant. By considering factors like temperature, humidity, and light levels, they create an optimal setting for growth while minimizing energy consumption. Moreover, these algorithms embrace the concept of Plant Empowerment. By incorporating this philosophy, they make decisions that not only promote healthier plant growth but also maximize energy efficiency.

The benefits of the Intelligent Algorithms

One of the greatest benefits of the Intelligent Algorithms is the peace of mind they offer to growers. By automating climate control and resource management, growers can focus on other important aspects of growing, knowing their crops are receiving the best care possible while using less energy.

A great example in practice is Agrico and Chada Farms in Mexico, a 20-hectare company specializing in cucumber cultivation. A pivotal aspect highlighted in this case is the direct impact of the IIVO computer and the Intelligent Algorithms provided by Hoogendoorn. These advanced tools have enabled them to optimize their resources exceptionally, maximizing greenhouse performance. Thanks to these advancements, they have managed to reduce their operating costs by 25%, while simultaneously increasing productivity and crop quality.

Alongside the success of Agrico and Chada Farms, there are numerous other successful projects utilizing these technologies. From all around the world, growers are benefitting from the IIVO computer and Intelligent Algorithms to enhance their production.

Moreover, the success of Agrico and Chada Farms is echoed in numerous other projects worldwide. Growers from diverse regions, including North America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, are benefitting from advanced systems like the IIVO computer and Intelligent Algorithms to enhance their production. 

Thought Leadership Session at GreenTech

In summary, Intelligent Algorithms are revolutionizing the field of horticulture. They're helping growers increase productivity while minimizing energy consumption and making eco-friendly choices. It's an exciting leap towards a future where sustainable growing practices are the norm, and energy efficiency is paramount.
