Careful water management will strengthen any horticultural business both in the short and long term. That is why Priva introduces an entirely new irrigation measurement system that provides real-time insight into plant water uptake and evaporation. Priva Irrigation Measurement enables growers to optimize their irrigation strategy to increase yield and crop quality while using resources more efficiently.
In developing Priva Irrigation Measurement, Priva combined its many years of expertise in smart irrigation management & sensoring to create an entirely new irrigation measurement solution. By continuously measuring plant weight, drain water quantity, nutrient content (EC) and acidity (optional) Priva Irrigation Measurement gives the grower maximum control down to the last drop of every irrigation cycle and highly valuable real-time insights into crop health & development via a cloud connection.
Improve precision and timing
Better precision and timing of irrigation will increase crop production and quality while reducing resource use such as fertilizers and water. An optimal balance between oxygen and moisture level in substrate results in healthy root development. Priva Irrigation Measurement can be equipped with a pH sensor (optional) to ensure a stable pH at the root environment. This is necessary for plants to better absorb essential minerals, which affects the vitality and taste of your crops.
Seamless connection with Priva control software
Priva Irrigation Measurement connects seamlessly with Priva Moisture Balance Module/Root Optimizer. The improved measurement accuracy and easy installation makes extending the Priva Connext or Compact CC process computers with these control modules more attractive, because it further enhances your irrigation system by making it even smarter, safer and more sustainable.
You can see all the sensor measurements clearly in Priva Operator, the online application that enables you to access your greenhouse data and settings from any smart device, in real-time. Via a cloud connection, you have 24/7 insight into your measurements and your data is safely stored.
Easy to install & maintain
Specially developed Priva Installation & Maintenance software helps installation partners through visualizations and step-by-step guides to get Priva Irrigation Measurement up and running smoothly, while minimizing downtime. Both Priva Irrigation Measurement and Priva’s new Weather station Pro 21 use low-maintenance and reliable state-of-the-art sensor systems and provide reliable and future proof monitoring solutions for successfully growing a crop.
Priva water management systems
In an environment where healthy growth of crop and company takes center stage, it is important that the various water flows are optimally controlled, and that the correct quantities of fertilizers are administered at the right time. The water systems developed by Priva enable growers to efficiently dose high-quality irrigation water and to recirculate it safely.
With over 60 years of research and development and horticultural experience in over 100 different countries, Priva is able to come up with innovative solutions to manage climate, water, energy and labor in your growing facility in a smart and sustainable way.
