Smart Greenhouse Horticulture (Gerberascout)

The GerberaScout is a mobile detection system for production, growth stress and recognition of powdery mildew at plant level for use in greenhouse horticulture. The system must make it possible for growers to steer the crop based on information collected from
individual plants. For example, growers can spray selectively or adjust their climate for optimum production. This will lead to improved quality, a higher quality and more sustainable product, more effective energy utilization, and the use of fewer crop protection agents and fewer losses.
