Hortau Offers Web-Based Irrigation Management Solutions for Nebraska Growers

Hortau’s web-based irrigation management solutions are now available to growers in Nebraska, and the timing couldn’t have been better.

According to numerous reports this year, Nebraska is expected to continue experiencing significant restrictions and reductions in the supply of ag water due to the lack of recharge to the Ogallala Aquifer.

Hortau, a global leader in wireless, web-based irrigation management, has local professionals in Nebraska to provide sales, service and technical support to growers. Most importantly, the Hortau team will assist growers in reducing plant stress while getting the maximum benefit from each water application.

In business since 2002, Hortau’s irrigation management system helps growers determine the measurement of pull necessary for a plant to uptake water in every soil type (silts, sands or clays), and works effectively in all forms of irrigation and among Nebraska’s wide range of crops, including corn, soybeans, wheat, sugar beets and potatoes.

“Throughout the High Plains, farmers have found that our soil tension technology and user-friendly format deliver beyond that of other systems on the market,” said Doug Larson, Hortau’s High Plains Regional Sales Manager. “Hortau is making an important contribution to the sustainability of agriculture, and having worked as a fourth generation farmer myself, I am proud to say that I’m part of the solution.”

Hortau’s WEB 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.

That patented, plant-centric approach ensures optimal plant growth, reducing water and energy use, while helping reduce leaching and other environmental impacts of crop production through better awareness and visibility of the full soil profile.
