Measure your slab parameters in an organized way using a sensor and set target objectives per parameter for the different periods of the crop.
Measuring = Knowing = Thinking = Doing
The root system is the part of the crop which is often a bit under estimated. For a lot of growers the rootzone is a so called ‘blackbox’ in which a lot of things (can) happen. It is the part where the plant will take up water and nutrients. If the parameters are wrong, the plant will have difficulties to take up the right (amount) of water and nutrients.
At the end the plant will not be in balance and this will cost yield and quality on plant and fruit level. So to avoid these imbalance of uptake, the grower has to monitor the parameters in the rootzone. The so called Big Five: Water Content (WC), EC, pH, O2 and Temperature (T).
