Crop Steering for Precision Agriculture

Crop steering is one of the most important tactics you can use to manipulate and improve your yields. This management practice “steers” plant growth by making precision micro-adjustments to your cultivation environment throughout the grow cycle.

Gro iQ’s climate controls helps you steer your environment to the perfect conditions for your plants to thrive. Our advanced AI-driven technology analyzes the input from data-rich sensor fields to ensure ongoing optimization. Our technology will empower you to increase the success of your yields with every grow.

Founding Member of the Sustainable Cannabis Coalition


The Sustainable Cannabis Coalition is made of experts from companies representing each major link in the cannabis cultivation, manufacturing and distribution supply chain. Each company is providing data driven blogs and podcasts employing sustainability use cases to help inform the cannabis market. Gro iQ and the SCC are working with Darmouth's Thayer School of engineering on a groundbreaking energy efficiency study in cannabis cultivation.


Use Cases

Time in Target Icon_edited.png


Before Gro iQ

  • Cultivation team suspected they had micro-climate issues, but no data to assess


With Gro iQ

  • Visualize Microclimates by Location, Duration  & Height

  • Low-cost airflow modifications to remediate & track

  • Compare multiple rooms to discover unique microclimates in each room


Yield improvement ~15%

Time In Target

Room Average

  • Ecosystem average Temp, RH, VPD are close to target

  • Multi-tier data shows 21% spread between min and max of different parameters

Time in Target

  • Multi-tier Time in Target analytics show parameters in target <10% of time during lights on

  • Reduce ranges thru HVAC timing controls


Yield improvement ~10%

DLI / Lighting

DLI Icon_edited.png

Before Gro iQ

  • New cultivation team took over operations with existing infrastructure (lights, HVAC, Dehu etc.)

  • Team thought they were hitting PPFD & DLI targets


With Gro iQ

  • Current lights ~20% below PPFD and DLI targets. Leverage light measurement + data to inform:

    • Quantification of PPFD and DLI Gap
    • Gap in yield vs. target

    • Gap in revenue vs. target

    • Opportunity for supplemental or retrofit

  • Each single % point under target PPFD/DLI represents ~1% percent yield loss


Yield improvement ~20%

Customizable Alerts

Critical Alert Graphic (1).png

Before Gro iQ

  • The cultivators were solely reliant on their control system to operate without flaws and had no way to monitor its accuracy or accountability with critical alerts.


With Gro iQ

  • With the use of customizable alerts the customer would be notified by email or text was out of their customized range allowing for intervention and correction. 

  • After a short power outage, the control system automatically rebooted it's LED lights in the middle of the night causing all lights in the room to turn on full power.

    • Gro iQ's alerting system made the cultivators aware the lights were on during their set sleep cycle and gave them the ability to remedy the situation, helping to save the entire harvest.


Crop Loss 0%

Use Cases

Client Testimonials

"Gro iQ provided a number of benefits and insights within the first flowering crop cycle. The most significant early wins were a more accurate measurement of DLI (Daily Light Integral), confirmation of the air flow mixing within and below the canopy by having a tiered array of thermo/hygrometers, and consistent data on soil EC that’s digitally charted instead of relying on handheld instruments. 


The best part of having Gro iQ in Rev Clinics’s Fitchburg facility is working with their excellent team of technical support and designers, providing feedback on improvements and the User Interface being updated shortly thereafter. The UI is well designed and adaptable to the grower’s specifications."

- Revolutionary Clinics

"From a greenhouse perspective, we are using Gro iQ Analytics to help steer the machine," Stanton says." If we're trying to cut electricity costs for production, what time of year can we shut down half of our supplemental lighting, and how will that affect plant growth? With Gro iQ we can run this type of evaluation on every aspect of the cultivation operation."
