by Bram Van de Poel, University of Leuven

In the GROW project we are developing novel sensors to quantify micro-climate conditions and fertilizer levels for greenhouse cultivation of tomato. These sensors are wireless and allow Internet-of-Things applications for smart farming in horticulture.

Our sensors are able to get a very high spatio-temporal resolution of the greenhouse micro-climate (temperature and relative humidity) as well as real-time rockwool electrical conductivity and ion content measurements.
