”The Victorian Seed Potato Authority is using Arcoflex Monitoring to help manage seed potato beds in its hothouses. Being remotely located at Toolangi in the ranges north of Melbourne, the 24/7 automated monitoring of growing conditions and equipment health has reduced management costs, plant stock risk and is optimizing plant growth.
With the continual collection and storage of data it is now possible to profile optimal growing conditions and develop disease prevention strategies.
“Arcoflex has given us a way to save on labour costs by having remote monitoring sensors keep track of growing conditions. We have reduced the use of chemical sprays with proactive monitoring of soil moisture and humidity conditions. We can also now track growing condition data not possible with manual recording. Arcoflex has saved us money and increased our horticultural knowledge.”
