Application & Market Utility

Mushroom farming relies heavily on understanding environmental factors like temperature, humidity, and compost conditions for successful crop yields. However, the industry still largely uses manual data collection methods such as pen and paper for keeping track of this crucial data, which doesn’t give the detailed insights needed for informed decision-making. Through working closely with mushroom growers, it’s clear there’s a real need for new technology to help fill this gap.
