Haygrove South Africa and AgrilogiQ have partnered to develop the most user-friendly, modular, and cost-effective field-scale polytunnel climate automation system.
The poly tunnel automation system consists of vent motorisation and an on-site dashboard with internal and external weather stations. These record wind speed and direction, rain, temperature, humidity and Vapour Pressure Deficit (VPD), allowing the grower to choose which factors to base the automation on and track the internal environmental changes as the venting takes place.
Once the automation parameters are entered into the program, the internal and external environments can be compared thereby enabling the system to vent the structure to meet the growers’ requirements.
The system has many safety features, including wind orientation, sun orientation, and closure in the event of rain – all automated and controllable through a website, which gives you control whether you are on the farm or not.
