Hortau’s soil tension monitoring system allows growers to keep their hemp plants healthy and productive. Our patented sensors report back soil tension levels, a direct measurement of the amount of water available to the plant. Growers then use our award-winning app to quickly view the status of each block and irrigate as needed. This keeps nutrients in the root zone, minimizes pest and disease pressures, and allows a grower to use water and energy more efficiently.

By watering only when needed pest and disease is kept at bay, uniformity is improved and plants thrive. 

Our grower support team has helped hemp growers across the US and Canada and would welcome the oportuity to speak to you about your operation.
