Smart monitoring solution for hydroponic crops
Summary:
Spanish start-up has developed a smart device for monitoring hydroponic crops. It also teaches people how to farm better. It is a thorough solution composed of a connected device, sensors, cloud intelligence and mobile app.

The outcomes are peace of mind for the user and better crops. The company is looking for commercial agreements with technical assistance
Description:
Hydroponics has been an underlying agricultural trend for years. Climate change and overpopulation are making it more necessary than ever. Other trends like local food production push in the same direction, and reports predict a big growth during the next years.
