Ask most growers what is needed in the greenhouse and the answer will most likely be, environmental controls. For David Hoffman, senior director of sales and operations at Hoffman Nursery in Rougemont, North Carolina, that is where Argus Controls Systems comes in. Argus has provided automated control systems for horticulture, aquaculture and related biotechnology industries since 1984 and Hoffman Nursery has relied on them.
Specializing in ornamental and native grasses, Hoffman Nursery grows
over 140 different species, grasses and sedges, and ships all over the
U.S. and into Canada. Its wide product selection and cross-country
shipping requires guaranteed product on a consistent basis. Hoffman says
the nursery is able to consistently deliver thanks to “Argus’ newer
more robust system” — the Titan System combined with Titan 900 Software.
“The system lets us dial in on temperature and humidity levels, which translates to better ventilation and reduced disease pressure,” Hoffman says. “And customers tell us they see high plant quality whenever it arrives to their site.”
