The Toronto-based company said in a press release that the sensor platforms will be used at WeedMD’s greenhouse facility in Strathroy, Ontario.
Braingrid added that the sensor platforms are wireless, helping cultivators monitor growing conditions in and around the plant canopy, where power connections aren’t always available. Use of solar panels makes the devices self-powered, according to Braingrid.
“We are very excited to have WeedMD, one of the most innovative cultivators in the cannabis sector, deploy our Sentroller S precision agriculture technology,” Michael Kadonoff, founder and CEO of Braingrid, said in a statement.
The Sentroller S has all of the features of Braingrid’s original Sentroller platform including quick installation and online dashboards and reports, as well as e-mail alarm notifications. The model also monitors temperature, relative humidity, carbon dioxide and moisture in the plant canopy.
WeedMD said it’s finishing an expansion at its 610,000-square-foot greenhouse in Strathroy and incorporating improvements including Braingrid’s sensor technology.
“We’re very pleased with the results so far with over 110,000 square feet of production space progressively online,” WeedMD CEO Keith Merker said.
Shares of Braingrid slipped C$0.01 to C$0.10 in Wednesday’s Canadian trading.
