The world moves more and more to online practices and so does the agriculture industry. Ever more agricultural businesses turn to data-driven practices. Data-driven agriculture means analysing data and using data to grow more and better. Data are not collected in your greenhouse only. Data from around the world will allow you to take intelligent actions and to optimise your practice. It enables you to make strategic decisions based on the data, the analysis, and the interpretation. Data-driven activities follow three steps:
- The collection of data from the field you’re interested in.
- The analysis of these data
- The drawing of conclusions and putting them into actions.
Greenhouses ask for an investment to become high-tech, but with a data-driven approach, the return on investment can be high. This sounds good, but what are effectively the benefits of data-driven growing for high-tech greenhouses?
