Growlink's beta program will mean more predictable, optimized yields with 95% accuracy


A beta program for Growlink Plant Health AI, a new artificial intelligence (AI) solution for greenhouse and indoor farming, has been announced by agriculture technology company Growlink.

The new technology utilizes cloud machine learning, computer vision and sensor data alongside AI to accurately track and predict plant health. Growlink Plant Health AI uses more than 200 million monthly data points collected by Growlink from 2,200 active devices to create high-definition, infrared camera images. Powered by Microsoft Azure, Growlink Plant Health AI is accessible on internet-connected devices through native mobile applications or desktop browsers.

Other features of Growlink Plant Health AI are data-powered agronomy; early disease and pest detection; and voice-enabled system management. Additionally, when utilizing the application, users will experience more predictable, optimized yields that are up to 95% accurate, thereby providing sales and purchasing teams with supply forecasts that closely match demand.

"The world must produce more food using fewer resources, and we are certain AI supported by advanced technology platforms will truly benefit farmers," said Ted Tanner, CEO and co-founder of Growlink. "From commercial greenhouses to vertical farming, the comprehensive data AI gathers and the real-time actions made from this data will lead to greater, predictable yields and reduced crop loss."
