|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 sell a variety of U-Pick berries and make it a “smart farm”. Last year, RIT students designed a hydroponic system for growing strawberries with an Arduino microcontroller. This year’s project is to have an Arduino that controls the functions of a high tunnel (unheated greenhouse) where blackberries are being grown.
There would be sensors that monitor soil moisture, soil and air temperatures, light intensity and relative humidity. The data would be collected by an Arduino that turns on ventilation fans and drip irrigation. Also, the data would be accessible on smart phones so that visitors to the farm could see it. An option above the basic control of functions is to focus on the soil temperature and design a system that would heat the soil or irrigation water during cold periods in the Spring and Fall.
