Tomatoe Cultivation

In the supermarket, there are year-round fresh fruit and vegetables. We are used to be buy tomatoes in any season. Many tomatoes are grown under glass in large and specialized farms. The plants often grown on substrates like rockwool or perlite and are supplied with a nutrient solution. In order to achieve optimal growth and best quality tomatoes, extensive automation is required.

The soil moisture sensor SMT100 together with a special calibration can be used to measure the water content in these special substrates and can thus provide important data for the automated watering of the plants.
