Koidra and Blue Radix are two companies working with Ontario greenhouse vegetable producers to integrate Artificial Intelligence (AI) in their production systems. A noon-time webinar on January 28 will highlight each company’s involvement in this space and answer producer questions.
Koidra presentation summary — Combining AI and Internet of Things (IoT) technology to establish automated greenhouse management will be the future of agriculture due to its ability to optimize climatic conditions and resources for a higher yield. Despite its widespread use in many applications, there is a significant lack of application of AI in horticulture. In this presentation, learn about 1) AI and its application in controlled-environment agriculture (CEA); 2) Its proof of concept in 2018 autonomous greenhouse challenge; 3) Koidra autonomous greenhouse tech.
Blue Radix presentation summary — Algorithms can feed the world! Growing with AI is becoming a reality for growers around the world. Smart algorithms optimize and steer climate, irrigation and energy in daily operations of greenhouses. During the presentation, growers will gain insight into the way autonomous growing is put into practice at the production locations of prominent vegetable growers in The Netherlands. The companies vary in size from nine acres to more than 240 acres (3.7 up to 100 hectares). This technology is now also available for Ontario’s growers. Would you like to know what it can bring for company? How you can lower the dependency of human expertise? How you can lower the unnecessary mistakes in daily operations? Join the webinar!
