If you have grown plants before, you will know the sheer amount of time, money and effort it takes to generate a successful crop. Imagine if this whole process could not only be optimized but improved. By automating your systems, you can reduce your costs and increase yields. In fact, plants can be harvest-ready 30 to 50 percent faster than if they were grown traditionally using hydroponics 2. But, in order to implement automated systems, you need the right type of hydroponic technology. How to Automate Your Plant Growing Process Automating your plant growing process is a powerful strategy to boost plant health and minimize cultivation time and effort. When diving into plant growth automation, consider two key factors. First, ensure you have the necessary equipment, both hardware and software, to control and monitor environmental conditions effectively. This integrated system maintains optimal growth conditions and minimizes issues like yellowing leaves. Second, recognize that different plants grow at different rates. Carefully choose your plants and allocate space accordingly. With six main types of hydroponics and over 391,000 species of plants 1, matching a system with plants is clearly vital. Our resources can provide the insight needed in that process. With our automation solutions, you can control growth rates, reducing the need for constant pruning and watering. Our engineering team can assist in optimizing your plant layout for thriving greenery. Automating your plant growing process offers advantages such as time savings, reduced labor costs, and consistent, high-quality plant growth. This controlled approach enhances yields and plant quality for efficient and dependable results

What are some potential challenges of automating your plant growing process? With a multitude of variables, automation demands preparation in order to guarantee success. To be prepared, you need to be aware of the risks that could come with automating your process. The first is the ability of those managing the system. If your staff is not up to speed on how to use the automation, you could end up with production downtime. The other risk is that of automation itself. It’s a risky process and there is always potential for something to go wrong. To mitigate such issues, we offer remote support and a way to connect to building automation systems. Our remote support allows us to see what you see, allowing us to guide those on site with ease. Not only this, but our modular system also provides ways to change plant root conditions via a remote session. Our resources ensure that the variables that could be the downfall of some, will be a strength to you. Conclusion With over 31% of businesses already having used automation in day-to-day tasks and their own technology 3, it’s clear that plant automation will pave a path to the future. We hope you are convinced now of both the benefits of automating a plant growing process and how we can help you through it.
