About Agrirootz

Agrirootz was founded in 2011 by Bauke and Marije Schreuder and made it its business to offer the perfect solution to agricultural holdings in the field of storage, packing, and processing of agricultural products.

Born in The Netherlands as a farmer’s son, Bauke’s passion for agriculture came naturally to him. He gained experience in different sections of agricultural holdings and now is considered an expert on storage techniques of various types of agricultural products. Bauke is living his passion with Agrirootz and it is also of great concern for him to pass on his knowledge.

The challenge

Bauke approached Typeqast because he wanted to develop his own solution to control vegetable storing warehouses. They had an issue with their existing software, which was inflexible, slow, and outdated. Agrirootz needed a fully modern solution to today’s standards, built with the newest and most stable technologies. They needed to be able to serve their customers with a flexible, extendable solution for the next 10 to 15 years to come.

The solution

Typeqast built a solution that can control devices, such as fans, coolers, and heaters, in a storage facility. The software connects to temperature and humidity sensors, which then detect and automatically regulate the conditions in the storage warehouse. Farmers can use a touch screen interface, and change the settings themselves or have the system run automatically.

The solution was created in three phases: Discovery, Prototype, and MVP phase. In the discovery phase, the architects and product lead researched the devices they needed to integrate. They conducted interviews with the founder and team and pictured all the possibilities. After that, the prototype was built together with the development team. In September this year, the first system was successfully installed at a customer’s warehouse.

The solution is built using the .NET Core Framework, which includes a front-end created using the Angular front-end framework. To build the solution we had a project lead with a scrum team of backend, frontend, QA, and DevOps engineers. In this way, we’ve been able to create a very special solution, integrated with a market-leader for industrial hardware, Beckhoff.


The results

We got to know the client – and even their family – extremely well, after working together in a true partnership. The product has just been implemented, and the long term benefits are looking great. A modern, flexible and fast solution was built that can be used for the next 15 years. In the future, the idea is that it will become a solution fully hosted in the cloud. In this way, a farmer could hypothetically sit on a beach while monitoring their storage facility and making sure that their valuable produce is taken care of.
