Digital Data for the Management of Greenhouse Crops

Digital Information for more-efficient Management of Greenhouse Cropping

This project aims to extract data from the plant and fruits in vivo (in the greenhouse), and to make use of these data to develop tools to make greenhouse cropping more efficient. This information of a digitised nature will tell us about the physiological state of the plant at the ‘t’ instant.

Improving the Efficiency of Greenhouse Crops

Improving the Efficiency of Greenhouse Crops

At present, greenhouses crops are grown in production systems considered to be indispensable, but whose environmental impact – in particular, owing to their use of fossil fuels – is sometimes seen as contentious. The aim of this project is to test innovative solutions for reducing the environmental impact of greenhouse systems, either by reducing resource use or increasing yields.
