IoT and Industry 4.0 technologies have started to significantly change every type of production. The agricultural industry is no exception.
This is why we have teamed up with Pierucci Agricoltura Srl, to create an IoT-enabled solution that is capable of real-time monitoring and recording of plant cultivation in nurseries.
这就是为什么我们与 Pierucci Agricoltura Srl 合作，共同构建一个能够实时监测和记录苗圃中的植物生长情况的物联网解决方案的原因。
Here is what Pierucci’s CEO had to say about our collaboration:
“For a long time we were looking for a smart agricultural solution that could help us optimize cultivation growth and reduce maintenance costs as well as energy consumption. With Zerynth’s help, we released our solution to the market, which is unique in the horticultural sector. The project has been an astounding success: it achieved all objectives in less than 6 months, opened a new revenue stream for us, and significantly increased our competitive edge.”
Pierucci 公司的 CEO 这么评价与我们的合作：

Challenges of modern agriculture
Growing plants commercially requires a lot of careful planning. Monitoring nutrients, sunlight, and other parameters is critical for successful cultivation.
Monitoring and control are even more strict for plant nurseries. Since nurseries have complex systems of young plants they require more agronomic treatment and attention for their nutrition and defense.
Also, these types of farms must adhere to government-mandated standards for achieving environmental and economic sustainability. Efficient use of fertilizers and pesticides, water containment, energy consumption, and a decrease in the risk of cultivar damage from system malfunctions and atmospheric events is crucial.
Nurset —— 由 Zerynth 驱动的观赏植物栽培 IoT 方案
Nurset, a Zerynth-powered IoT solution for cultivation of ornamental plants
The Zerynth team has provided Nurset as the solution to the problems Pierucci has been facing.
Zerynth 团队为 Pierucci 提供了 Nurset 解决方案，以解决其所面临的问题。
Nurset is an IoT-enabled solution designed for monitoring the cultivation of ornamental plants in nurseries. We built it using the 4ZeroBox – our industrial IoT device for data acquisition, monitoring, and control of machines. The 4ZeroBox was then connected directly to the Cloud through the zDeviceManager.
Nurset 是一套基于 IoT 技术的解决方案，旨在监控苗圃中观赏植物的种植。我们使用 4ZeroBox（一个用于数据采集、监测和控制的工业物联网设备）获取数据，并通过 zDeviceManager 直接与云端连接。
This system allows information analysis, manages an alert system, and digitizes documentation for nutrition and crop protection. You can find out more about it on the Case Study page.
