Got Produce?, a California-based provider of hydroponic greenhouse solutions, has announced that its distributed wireless control system makes use of unmanned aerial system sensor technology. Hydroponics is a method of growing plants in water rather than soil.
The company says the drone technology allows targeted, real-time information for immediate control response. Using the technology, plant temperatures can be determined at certain places, and adjustments in irrigation and environmental controls can be made in real time.
As such, the company notes that the sensors can help enhance production capabilities without using more resources, such as water or power.
Got Produce? plans to make the technology available to areas where traditional farming methods are not an option for everyone.
