Using soil tension to determine the precise amount of water to be applied, Hortau’s proprietary system has helped growers of countless crop types improve plant health, boost yields and cut irrigation costs.Ipad Irrigation Management
Hortau’s wireless irrigation field technology, combined with its simple, cloud-based software, securely reports to owners and ranch managers how crops are faring in real time.
The patented soil tension sensors allow growers to detect plant stress, which is the driving factor in crop yield and quality before the damage is done. This proven technology greatly increases a grower’s water-use efficiency and cuts down on fertilizer leaching, thus improving the bottom line.
