"With the PlantControl CX we increased the yield on our berry crops like never before. In addition, our time consumption for operating and controlling our irrigation and fertilization system has been reduced by more than 90%. At the same time water as well as fertilizer consumption were reduced and the plants are much more resistant against pest and fungus.
The ability of the PlantControl CX to send us an alarm per SMS when a valve is defect or the water filter is blocked is another very valuable feature."
