December Release e-Gro
Announcing Growth Tracker: the newest advanced module for e-Gro
We’re excited to announce the latest innovation for e-Gro: Growth Tracker. Grodan is committed to helping cultivators realize increased profitability using data to drive decisions to capture the full potential of your crops.
e-Gro gives cultivators more insights and control over their operations and provides revolutionary data driven cultivation guidance. The introduction of Growth Tracker is an important milestone towards in this goal. The first release of Growth Tracker is December 8th, 2020. As part of our dedication to continuous improvement, this release will be followed by more enhancements for Growth Tracker at the end of January.
Growth Tracker Introduction
Cultivators have told us repeatedly that a lack of insights and production inefficiencies are causing problems for growers. The lack of documentation and insight into the entire growing cycle and status of plants means that growers must make decisions without full information. With Growth Tracker cultivators have immediate access to detailed and accurate documentation of the full growth cycle between batches in each room as well as historical data at the individual batch level.
With this new module you will be able to create, move, track and compare all entered batches throughout the grow cycle and post-harvest phases all the way until a batch is completed. You can track the performance of your mother plants and the batches in which cuttings of this mother plant were used. You can even split and add batches, if needed, based on your specific growing process. Any previous data can be added during any moment of the grow cycle and post-harvest phases for a more complete picture of the batch. This critical data empowers you and your team to optimize SOPs and crop steering strategies to ensure consistency in the end product’s quality. With the ability to compare batch data and performance with previous crops, you gain complete insight into the current batch compared with historical performance for your facility.
By documenting key elements of the growing process, you can compare and analyze crucial strain specific information related to the growing process consistently throughout the facility. Capturing the key elements for all batches and mother plants means you can improve SOPs and operational parameters, as well as compare the performance of individual batches to the desired average performance. This gives you the power to optimize crop steering and production. But that’s not all, Growth Tracker’s benefits include:
Optimizing strain specific strategy
Helps you in optimizing strain specific strategies by gathering all relevant parameters throughout the entire growing cycle, which can result in better yield.
Compare the performance of individual batches so you know how to steer your crops in a better direction.
Be able to easily capture key elements related to an individual batch and mother plants to get full control over the growing cycle of your plants.
Better labor planning
Better data supports better labor and resource planning as previous resource needs at each stage of crop development are clearly shown
How to Access Growth Tracker
Growth Tracker will be visible in the header menu. Since e-Gro is a web-based application, data will be visible on all your devices via user friendly screens, enabling remote access to your greenhouse/warehouse data anywhere, at any time.
