The optimal

Water balance

 “In order to achieve an optimal water balance, you first need to know where you stand. That is why sensor measurements in the slab are crucial. Not once a day, but continuously in different places in the greenhouse. In this way you can constantly keep track of the water content, EC and temperature. This enables you to take the right action when the plant really needs it. In other words: you predict what’s going to happen and anticipate it. That’s how to make sure you stay on course and don’t have to make corrections afterwards.”
