Precise irrigation and drain water control
HortiMaX ProDrain lets you use your time more efficiently. This system quickly identifies problems, such as reduced crop growth and transpiration, so you can take prompt action to correct them. ProDrain continuously measures the substrate weight, based on which it accurately determines the substrate water content, the drain water volume and even the condition of your crop. This information enables you to automate irrigation according to the exact needs of your crop.

Kesgro's experiences with ProDrain and MM
Kesgro is a business with three glasshouses, each 22 acres in size, and is situated in Middenmeer, a town in the Dutch province of North Holland. Kesgro specializes in tomato production. Since recently, the business has been using a number of ProDrain systems and moisture meters (MM). We, therefore, caught up with Martin van der Hout, Kesgro’s general manager, to ask him about his experiences with this new equipment.
