what we do

Your eyes into the soil

We provide growers with real time field and soil data to help them make decisions around irrigation and fertilizer applications. We do this using soil tension probes that report back to a mobile web app, allowing you to monitor water and fertilizer movement throughout the soil profile and determine when and how long to irrigate.

Our Services

A Modular & Customizable Solution

By tracking soil tension, a direct measurement of precisely how much water is available to the plant, growers anticipate plant stress and irrigate as needed to prevent damage. Our team of certified CCAs and PCAs, Ag Scientists, Licensed Agronomists, and Irrigation Specialists work with growers to identify challenges and set goals. We continually work with the grower to optimize nutrient absorption, water uptake, and aeration.

A Word From Our CEO

Having grown up on a farm, I understand the complexity of farming and what it takes to grow a profitable crop.

After leaving the farm it became clear that to maintain consistent crop health, yield and quality, growers need access to real-time and forecasted information – to anticipate, adjust, manage inputs precisely – and repeat their success year after year, across every acre..

Helping you succeed is what drives us. Feel free to drop us a line to learn more or give feedback.
