Flexibility when it comes to making adjustments, acting as a coach and advising the grower, regular updates that are carried out remotely, and remote control that makes it possible to monitor the cultivation from a distance. A small selection of the many features that IIVO is rich in helps Vereijken Kwekerijen to get the most out of its cultivation.

"Nowadays we have a lot more data at our disposal. From plant registration, temperature, energy consumption. You name it. We want to have all this insightful, compare it with each other and use it so that the best possible greenhouse climate is created, but also so that we can grow more sustainably and thus save costs. The IIVO helps us with this".
