Hortau Showcasing Web-Based Irrigation Management Solutions at Commodity Classic

Hortau will be showcasing the latest generation of its web-based irrigation management system at the 19th annual Commodity Classic in San Antonio on Feb. 27 to March 1.

Hortau, a global leader in wireless, web-based irrigation management, will be on hand at “America’s largest farmer-led, farmer-focused convention and trade show” to discuss the stresses extreme weather put on crops, and how soil tension technologies can help growers improve yield and cut irrigation costs in the face of the today’s water issues.

The theme of this year’s show, held along the River Walk at Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, is “On Board for Profits,” as more than 3,000 corn, soybean, wheat and sorghum growers are expected to be on hand.

Exhibiting at Booth 1006, Hortau will have consultants on hand throughout the show, demonstrating how its TX3 wireless irrigation management station combined with its newly upgraded and simplified software, reports to growers how crops are faring in real time – before unseen stresses such as lack of aeration or drought can have a negative impact on the crop.

Hortau’s patented, plant-centric approach ensures optimal plant growth, reducing water and energy use, while helping eliminate fertilizer leaching and other environmental impacts of crop production.

“We’re excited to be part of a conference that’s for farmers by farmers,” Hortau CEO Jocelyn Boudreau said. “We’ll be using the opportunity to connect with our trusted growers in the region and talk with others about the benefits of real-time soil tension measurement, and how measuring available water to a crop keeps plants healthier during times of stress and extreme weather events.”
