In today’s dynamic horticultural environment, making informed decisions is critical for maximizing yield and profitability. With variables like temperature, lighting, and humidity influencing the growth process, relying solely on intuition or outdated methods can be risky. That is why we developed Ridder HortOS Yield—a powerful tool designed to support your decision-making. HortOS Yield is the module for accurate tomato crop yield prediction, that uses a plant-based model and real-time crop weight feedback (using the Ridder Growth Monitor or ProDrain) to accurately forecast yields. Resulting in the right crop yields and fruit sizes, at the right time and thus greater profitability. Additionally, it provides insight into the crop balance (vegetative vs generative). With HortOS Yield growers gain confidence in their operational decisions with a robust and trustworthy decision-support tool.

A Closer Look at Growth Monitor
Ridder Growth Monitor measures the actual weight of the crop, giving the grower direct feedback on the daily crop growth. Growth Monitor removes the uncertainty of crop performance. Humidity, irrigation, light levels, greenhouse structure, all affect the crop in different ways and the Growth Monitor gives direct feedback on the combined effect of all those influences. The measured daily crop growth provides our Yield Module and its algorithm with the necessary data to adapt to your specific crop.
