Smart Farming 4.0

Industri berbasis teknologi 4.0, kini sudah diterapkan petani sayuran hidroponik di greenhouse. Kegiatan pertanaman tidak lagi dilakukan secara manual, tetap sudah dikendalikan dengan menggunakan komputer.

Pertanian 4.0 dengan teknologi Smart Farming sudah berjalan sejak beberapa tahun yang lalu di Indonesia, terutama dalam pertanian hidroponik baik di greenhouse atau indoor growing dan vertical farming.

Smart farming adalah sebuah inovasi teknologi yang bergerak dibidang pertanian untuk meningkatkan kualitas dan mutu produksi pangan di Indonesia guna terwujudnya ketahanan pangan yang selalu konsisten dari masa ke masa.

Kami Menggunakan beberapa teknologi grow control dan climate and hydroponic controller

  1. Agrowtek Grow Control GC-ProXL Climate & Hydro Controller (Including Basic Climate Sensor & Ethernet Port)
  2. Agrowtek’s gc-proxl-e controls up to three climate zones & two nutrient reservoirs. Same great features as gc-pro, with expanded hardware to handle more sensors & relays. Includes four Sensor ports, eight discrete inputs, Sixteen outputs for relays & one basic climate Sensor. Serial & Ethernet ports for free remote monitoring software. Up to three (3) climate zones, two (2) zones each with hydroponics dosing for up to eight (8) parts plus two (2) pH
  3. Agrowtek GrowControl™ GC-Pro control system
  4. GrowControl™ GC-ProXL includes a powerful PC application offering full control of the system. The GC-ProXL can be operated without a touch-panel interface and with only PC software for economy applications. Features include graphical and spread-sheet data logging, status and control of inputs, outputs and sensor readings, all controls and settings, email alerts and more.

    The GC-ProXL is built with Agrowtek’s exclusive Flexnology™ which allows the grower to tailor the controller’s functions precisely to their operation’s requirements. A large ‘tool box’ of control functions is provided for the user to select from and assign to outputs as required by the equipment to be controlled. Additionally, important features are included such as:

    • Lamp hot-fire prevention
    • Output delay sequencing (to prevent load spikes)
    • Alarms and alerts
    • Trending and data logging
    • Remote internet access and control
    Complete Climate Control

    Fully automate multiple zones with independent controls for cooling, heating, humidification, dehumidification, CO2 injection and ventilation with boost timing, light timers and light flip box controls, and more! Featuring a large array of different timers including irrigation timers, precision repeat cycle timers (in minutes, seconds, or hours) 24-hour timers, 24-hour cancellation timers, combination 24-hour cycle timers, off-delay timers, re-start delay timers and hour meters. Greenhouse models feature multi-stage heating, cooling and humidity control for advanced integration of hvac, fans and vents.

    Fully Automated Hydroponics Dosing

    GrowControl™ systems take the manual work out of maintaining a hydroponics system. Fully automate and schedule reservoir changes, nutrient dosing and pH control. Mix volumetric batches or add Agrowtek’s hydro sensor kit to monitor and maintain pH, EC and temperature automatically (standard model only.)

    AgrowTouch™ Touch Screen

    An industrial strength touch screen interface is available which allows fast and easy access to all settings in the controller including manual over-rides of all equipment, adjustment of all settings, graphical display and history of all sensor readings, alarm history display and more. On-screen help provides the operator with quick tips and describes each function of the controller. For economical or starter applications, the GC-ProXL can be adjusted and monitored with the free PC software.

The Growth of Urban Farming

Urban farming is not a new concept, but it is a rapidly growing one that more people are adopting. With more than 2 billion people now residing in cities around the world it is increasingly important that we use forgotten spaces to adopt practices that will benefit both the environment and our society.

Taking urban farming one step further, Agrifam Farming Solutions has developed a project which not only delivers fresh and delicious fruit and vegetables to your city-dwelling families, it does it in a very urban, high tech way. By combining the attributes of hydroponics and those of aquaculture, Agrifam uses a new farming technology called hydroponics & aquaponics to grow produce and breed fish
