B-Mex is a young and growing company specialized in the practical application of crop, greenhouse climate and soil models to support growers and farmers in their decision-making. Cultivating crops is a difficult process where many different factors are entangled and all have their effect on the crop and the eventual production. Finding the best strategy is thus not always easy and it can be difficult to oversee all the different factors that play a role. Whit changing weather conditions but also a faster changing world and climate it means that the strategy of last won’t work as good this year. Models have proven to give valuable insight in all the changing factors that influence the crop and can be of value in finding the optimal cultivation strategy for both the farmer and the environment.
The software systems we build help in the decision making surrounding the cultivations of multiple crops. In greenhouses we help to simulate the effects of different climate strategies. In arable farming we help to show the effects of decisions surrounding fertilization and irrigation. In this way we help to cultivate in a more sustainable and efficient way.
Examples of our model-based tools:
- OCAP optimal that helps grower decide on the optimal CO2 dosing pattern in the greenhouse.
- Gerbera Scenario Tool that helps growers determine the effect of different climate strategies via a scenario tool so they can determine the best strategy concerning the health of their crop, their energy use and the financial consequences.
- Ferti is an application we develop together with the company Van Iperen. It helps farmers gain more insight around the effectiveness of their fertilization and irrigation.
We are often looking for new people that can help us make theoretical knowledge applicable in practice. Find more information on our website www.b-mex.com
