C-E Agriculture

Civilizations are founded on fertile soil and nutrients, clean water, and the natural pollination of crops. That is why the commercial Controlled Environmental Agriculture (CEA) sector is one of the industries we like to work with. Here is why:

Controlled-Environment Agriculture (CEA)

Controlled-Environment Agriculture is a 4IR-technology-based approach toward enclosed-space food production, so as to provide protection and maintain optimal growing conditions for the crops, 24/7, in any season, anywhere on our planet, thereby not trying to conquer but continually respect, care, and use the richness of the natural world, wherever possible.

CEA allows a grower to accomplish two critical goals:

  1. maximizing crop production and quality,
  2. optimizing inputs, like energy, labor, water and other operating expenses.

To create the ideal Agri-Environment, growers have to control their Light, Air, Water, Nutrients, and the Systems in the Spaces of their Structures. All of these can be monitored remotely and automatically 24/7.

Controllable variables:

  1. Humidity (%RH)
  2. Carbon dioxide (CO2)
  3. Water (quality & quantity)
  4. Pests (mites, aphids, fungi)
  5. Data (accumulation & analysis)
  6. Nutrient concentration (PPM, EC)
  7. Power source (solar, wind, heat-dome, grid)
  8. Light (intensity, spectrum, duration and intervals)
  9. Temperature (air, nutrient solution, root-zone, leaf)
  10. Nutrient pH (acidity), N-P-K ratios (Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium)
