Smart Farming

Greenheart Technology Platform

The Company’s core platform is the design and use of a growing environment that applies world leading technology, best practices and
lessons learned in system to create a competitive advantage against less sophisticated low tech peers.

 

Our farms are managed by highly trained and experienced European master growers and agronomists utilizing smart farm technology.

The platform conforms to European standards and leverages technology in the following areas:

Climate and Plant Health Monitor Systems

Seed Stock and Breeding Technologies

Irrigation and Nutrient Management

Biological insect pest control

Hydroponics

Efficient use of power, water and land

The platform utilises advanced management control systems

Sensors

Provide real time environmental data to a centralised data management capability, which responds by altering inputs. These real time adjustments induce a set of physiological responses which in turn maximise plant growth.

The farms also use new Australian technology that controls lighting, temperature, water and manages data.

Climate Management

Our Greenhouse platform utilises tailored ventilation and insulation technology to control the climate within the greenhouse reducing the impacts of climate variation.

We have partnered with a global leader in the seed industry, to develop seeds stock specifically for the farms’ markets that are adapted to the local growing conditions. Utilising the latest in accelerated Plant Breeding technologies, our farms can optimise plant characteristics to the growing conditions within the farms’  platform and respond to market demand.

Product quality is a key focus, our farms will target products which deliver colour, firmness and features which appeal to the target markets.

Irrigation

Water is delivered to the plants through a remotely controlled irrigation system that monitors in real time soil moisture levels. This data is used to monitor individual plant water uptake and consequently plant health at a plant by plant basis.

Tailored Nutrition

Our farms’ fertiliser irrigation systems are composed of a fertiliser injector station and fertiliser distribution system. The distribution of fertilisers is managed in real time responding to plant health and growing responses of the plants. This data is recorded and managed centrally through the sensor monitor system.
