This year has learned that it is a huge benefit to be able to share your data. Asking your consultants or colleagues questions and sharing insights from a distance during a global pandemic is easy to do on the 30MHz platform. We saw a huge rise in questions and comments about crops and data during the pandemic. In 2021 we continue to connect people, plants and technology. We are working on some helpful new features for horticulture in 2021. Let’s have a look on our roadmap for the coming year!

From organisation based to location based
At 30MHz we provide all the elements horticultural businesses in 2021 need to digitise their locations, centralise their data collection and digitally monitor their crops without technical expertise. It’s our ambition to become 100% compatible with every sensor and data source available in the market. This way you can collect and analyse all your data in one place: the 30MHz platform.
To improve your organisation’s overview, it will be possible to split your organisation into different locations. Just like in the physical world. This enables you to create a digital version of your company in a more detailed way. And if your organisation is expanding, your digital environment will grow along.
Split your organisation into different locations.
How can a grower get a clear view of what’s happening in the greenhouse as quickly as possible? That is a key question in our product development. By adding schematic maps to the platform we make data easier to understand. If you have different locations it will be possible to make an accurate digital representation of your organisation, as seen below.
Make zones in your digital greenhouse.
We are also making improvements on the navigation. It will become easier to switch between groups and organisations.
Navigate smoothly between groups.
Apps and plugins for specific needs
Sharing data, asking questions and providing comments on specific cases. Like we said we saw a rapid increase in the social elements of the 30MHz platform. We believe it’s important that you can share information in a simple manner. Especially during times of pandemic. We want you to be able to make the most of consultants’ expertise and advice. In 2021 we want to improve the way you interact with your partners and we will introduce extra features for sharing information.
Our customers asked for specific applications that can be integrated within our platform. We develop these apps with third parties. In 2020 we added Climate Profile by Delphy and 2Grow Plant Insights will follow in January. In the coming months more applications will follow. A sneak peek of work in progress:
Use third party apps to gain more insights.
To illustrate what this means to you as a user we take a look at the new 2Grow app. 2Grow offers sensors that collect data about the sap flow and stam diameter of plants. The Plant Insights application can provide growers with detailed information on the various ways their plant is being influenced. See the image below for an impression of the app.
2Grow Plant Insights shows you what is going on inside your plant.
More insights about light and temperature
We would love to show you another feature that you have been asking for: the scatter plot. This is a type of data visualisation that shows the relationship between different variables. A scatter plot can be very helpful when you can control one continuous variable and the other variable depends on the variation of the first variable. This enables you to see a relation between variables that you don’t see when you just look at the numbers. We show you an example of a scatter plot that uses light as a controllable variable and temperature as a dependent variable. But there are many more variables that you can use in this widget.
Use the scatterplot to translate data into information.
Any ideas for 2021?
2021 promises to be yet another important year in the digitalization of agriculture. Together with you, we want to build an even better platform. A place that suits all your needs. At 30MHz, we are always open to suggestions. We would love to hear from you if you have any ideas or questions. Is there a specific problem that you want to tackle by using data? Do you want to gain insights based on data but you don’t know how to begin? Don’t hesitate and let us know. We will listen and help you.
