Bringing glasshouse technology onto the field. Second AMI Penta fertilizer Mixer installed in Scotland for precise fertigation with irrigation control for a soft fruit farm. Having the SIIP system in place this will become automatic, taking moisture, drainage and climate readings from the field. Based on user targets, the software will take control over crop requirements and adjust accordingly.
AMI Penta sets even greater focus on the plants’ need for precision fertilizing and accurate acidity in the irrigation water at the right time. We have never seen a more precise dosing of EC and pH, giving the plants the required nutrients at the right pH.
AMI Penta fertilizer mixer is easy to operate with well-arranged menus shown on a large 10.1″ touch screen.
Many languages are available and switching between them is very simple. This minimizes the risk of human errors in companies employing people of different nationality.
Current setup controls 16 valves for growing tabletop strawberries. For each group, you can choose between 20 diﬀerent recipes with information about EC, pH and the fertilizer mix. Irrigation time and volume can be set individually for each valve. Adjustments by radiation, drainage or climate.
The software in AMI Penta is based on a standard operating system and is easy to update and expand with more functions and larger capacity when needed. AMI Penta will be connected to one central PC with the SuperLink 6 central control program for further analysis. Graphics that you can build on like chill units, GDH and disease forecast models.
It’s an exciting new development that will help you focus on more precise growing.
