P19420: Blackberry High Tunnel Monitoring System
/public/

Home

Project Summary Project Information

The Durgin Family Farm is located at 1175 Martin Road, West Henrietta and is less than 7 miles from RIT. The plan is to make it a “smart farm” and have the high tunnel monitor the blackberries while also taking care of them.

This project will have an Arduino that controls the functions of a high tunnel (unheated greenhouse) where blackberries are being grown. There will be sensors that monitor soil moisture and air temperatures. The data will be collected by the Arduino which will turn on the drip irrigation, fertilizing system or fans depending on the what the high tunnel currently needs regulated. The data will then be displayed on a GUI on a tablet run by a Raspberry Pi. One goal above the basic control of functions is to focus on the air temperature and design a system that would heat the irrigation water during cold periods in the Spring and Fall.
