Creating a report typically takes hours, multiple software tools and gathering data from various sources. The completely new Reports Module now captures, saves and shows all your key information and data in one comprehensive week overview, tied to a specific crop type. No more need for Excel or other tools; it’s now all-in-one! Short summary of this new improvement:
In the previous release we focused on a redesigned Dashboard, which included advice by Grodan regarding which direction crops are growing based on the applied irrigation strategy. Now we go one step further with an optimization of the Dashboard, allowing you see if you are on track with your growing strategy through the ability to set your own ranges. Short summary of this new improvement:
Continuing on the topic of customization, we have also worked on significantly more user-friendly customization options to the graphs in the Conditions Module. Short summary of this new improvement:
With this release we extended our API partner suite by adding meteo (external weather predictions) into the Yield Forecaster model. This is a significant improvement as the model is AI driven and the algorithm of the yield forecaster improves over time. By adding this new data into the algorithm, the Yield Forecaster becomes more responsive and adaptive to the future and weather changes. This additional is just one step towards adding more to the API partner suite that clients have been asking for.
All these improvements sound nice, but there’s no true benefit if you don’t know how to implement them correctly. Our Green Advisors and Customer Success Managers make sure our users understand these new changes. E-Gro allows us to give better growing advices (on-distance) towards our customers.
This month we also release a new feature to tag peers or crop consultants in e-Gro and the next big release is planned for September.

Four leading players in the indoor farming sector have joined the Resource Innovation Institute (RII) in a pilot that aims to transform the controlled environment agriculture (CEA) sector. The partnership aims to provide growers with insights and benchmarks that they can use to maximize sustainability and minimize their footprint. The pilot is funded by the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture).
Since 2012 Grodan organizes the International Propagation Seminar (IPS). Over the years, this event has become the international platform for propagators and their suppliers to exchange knowledge and offers excellent networking opportunities. In our ambition to further increase the impact of this event we identified new possibilities.
