Forteco Scale

Forteco products have a high air-holding capacity, which ensures good drainage and crop management. Therefore, they must be watered regularly with sufficient small (pouring) turns. In order to gain a better understanding of the method of watering and to be able to adjust the irrigation strategy, Forteco has developed its own scale and associated webapplication.

With the scale, the weight of the Forteco coco slabs and growpots can be monitored per minute. The scale is equipped with an UTP connection for wired internet and thus connected directly to the growers’ network. This way data is never lost!

In the webapplication, the data are plotted in clear graphs. Among other things, it can accurately display the quantity of water absorbed and evaporated by the slabs during the night. In addition, the starting and stopping times, but also the frequency of watering can be adjusted based on this information. The grower and, if desired, his adviser can view this data online with his own login code and password at any desired location.
