"A crop grows tall by the watchful eye of the farmer."

Still spoken in the countryside, this axiom has offered timeless insight to generations of growers. Guided by this wisdom, our aim is to replicate those keen observational powers using various sensors, relays and grow data, resulting in fresher produce grown at optimum conditions.

Dashboard
