A global leader in biotechnology, Syngenta is the world’s largest crop chemical producer and an industry pioneer in crop production and seed development.
Industrial flower production is a precise science. Few flowers demand as accurate control of environmental conditions as orchids. Even slight anomalies can cause damage to the product: overwatering and underwatering can be destructive, water salt levels must be perfectly balanced, while optimum temperature and light exposure varies. Orchids are particularly sensitive to ethylene levels in the ambient air, so proper ventilation is crucial for quality crops.
Using sensor data to create a yield enhancing product
Crop science multinational Syngenta worked with 30MHz on an an industry-grade agricultural IoT solution resulting in a system integrating ethylene sensors, light sensors, and humidity sensors to help farmers control key variables driving orchid production. Real-time data from this combination of sensors has helped prevent and mitigate the damage to orchids caused by environmental changes– including high ethylene levels– during growth, leading to higher volume and better quality product.
