High tunnel greenhouses are a common way for farmers to protect crops, increase crop yield, and extend growing seasons, but how can they be further improved? Enter: a high tunnel can take care of itself! Our team partnered with Durgin Family Farms to develop just that. We automated processes within their high tunnel to facilitate the growth of blackberry plants, and regulated subsystems such as ventilation, irrigation, heating, and fertigation so that the customer doesn't have to.
