Mucci Farms has introduced ecoation’s OKO Immersive platform into their operations.

More than a manual platform, OKO Immersive has built-in digital capabilities to capture user observations and critical plant health measurements, continuously monitoring greenhouse conditions.

“We are very excited about our collaboration with Mucci Farms. They are one of the most proactive and modern greenhouses in the world, making this a natural place for us to deploy our leading-edge technology,” said B.C.-based ecoation founder and CEO, Dr. Saber Miresmailli. “Mucci Farms is a technology pioneer who is defining new standards in the industry. To have them as both a paying customer of existing ecoation technology and research collaborator on our future developments gives ecoation firsthand insight into the future of farming and informs us on how we can play a role in its formation and advancement. Our Human+Machine platform can significantly benefit from collaboration with the amazing team at Mucci Farms who are masters of their craft and among the best in the industry.”

Building on previous versions of OKO, Immersive is said to include a completely immersive 360-degree, 8K view of the greenhouse and low latency data exchange capabilities. It targets three key areas – IPM, yield production assessment and crop work.

The partners have also signed a two-year research agreement to develop further products in Mucci Farms’ Ontario greenhouse facilities.

“At Mucci Farms, our goal, first and foremost, is to find the best solutions that allow us to efficiently provide consumers with consistent, fresh, flavourful fruits and vegetables. We meet these goals with a strong emphasis on research and development which is one of the main pillars of our company, and we are excited to partner with ecoation to further our efforts to advance the greenhouse industry,” said Mucci Farms CEO, Bert Mucci.
