Plant-e crowdfund: Smartcrops with a touch of magic


Plant-e crowdfund campaign: SmartCrops with a touch of magic

Welcome to our Plant-e crowdfund campaign page! The goal of this crowdfund is to develop SmartCrops: a CO2 negative, intelligent crop-system. Via the button on the bottom of this page you can go to the crowdfund platform directly.

The goal of the Plant-e crowdfund campaign

We want to create an intelligent, reusable sensor system that is non-invasive, and allows for a healthy continuous crop production with zero waste and carbon negative energy production. For this system we need adaptation of both Pycno sensors and Plant-e technology to make them compatible. Pycno delivers the sensors, Plant-e produces the power.

What will we do?

By combining Pycno sensors and Plant-e electricity plants give us feedback about their status and the status of their environment. With this insight we can get to know how the soil is doing, what the temperature is, and how high the water level is. The combination of the two innovative technologies makes it possible to use the electricity produced by plants to power sensors. In their turn, the sensors send data and instructions to your phone, so you know what you can do to keep your crop healthy. With this information, the use of water and fertilizers can be optimized, reducing waste and optimizing crop quality. Every crop in conventional and urban agriculture could become a SmartCrop!

Help us reach our goal! When we reach our goal we can already start experimenting with a plant powered sensor.

Spread the word, so plants can too!!
