Revol Greens, the largest sustainable greenhouse lettuce grower in North America, has chosen Blue Radix, an independent Dutch autonomous growing specialist, to provide technology services to all of Revol’s U.S. based greenhouses.
The agreement will see Blue Radix offer artificial intelligence technology and services for Revol Green’s daily greenhouse operations, including climate control, irrigation, and energy management. Revol Greens’ investment in AI will increase crop yield levels and reduce energy costs, furthering its mission to grow lettuce and greens in a more sustainable way that is better for people and the planet. The two companies started their cooperation in April this year.
With Blue Radix’s Crop Controller, data is collected, structured, and processed using algorithms to automate day-to-day decision-making, continuously seeking ways to reduce costs and minimize risks. The ‘digital brain’ will autonomously manage and stabilize Revol’s greenhouses climate conditions and optimize energy use, even in locations with harsh outside weather conditions such as Revol Green’s.
Autonomous growing for lettuce in commercial greenhouses
Blue Radix’s advanced AI technology will calculate the optimal greenhouse climate every 5 minutes using plant and climate sensors based on historical data and multi-day weather forecasts, giving Revol Greens more control over temperature, humidity, carbon dioxide, and required light levels in all their greenhouses.
Freedom to grow in different climate conditions
Revol Greens’ partnership with Blue Radix will allow Revol Greens to control production more precisely across multiple locations in MinnesotaCaliforniGeorgia, and Texas.
Increased crop yield
Blue Radix’s technology is currently employed in Revol Greens’ facility in Owatonna, Minnesota, and is on track for further deployment in Tehachapi, California, Athens, Georgia, and in their new facility in Temple, Texas.
