Charleston tomato grower Shawn Rensford develops KnowYourGrow.IO:
Readings, data and sensors critical to optimizing yields
Rensford, who is also an engineer, launched KnowYourGrow.IO as he was frustrated with the lack of data integration so took it into his own hands. What was once a side project, is now something he hopes to bring to the industry at large. They have just released a new device, the Mantis, which assists growers in taking their crop knowledge to a new level.
The Mantis device has a rugged enclosure, uses industrial grade sensors and can be installed on any irrigation unit. "It was built to make data access and analysis simple, both real-time and historical, from anywhere and on any web enabled device", said Rensford.

It is packaged with PH, EC, ORP, Dissolved Oxygen, water temperature and can come with an optional flow rate/total sensor. "The combination of these readings is critical to optimizing yields", said Rensford.
The tomato grower is currently developing additional products for integration into control systems as well as modules to support new sensors. The end goal is to pack every sensor reading of value into one easy to use platform.
The platform has been extensively tested in the harshest of greenhouse and indoor grow conditions. They are offering HortiDaily subscribers a 10% release discount through the end of the year. Use the coupon code HORTI10 at checkout.
