Patented Technology

The heart of the Hortau system is our patented soil tension sensor.

Hortau’s soil tension sensors report back readings in real-time to a data station. That station send data to an app-based platform that allows the grower to see readings in real-time, anticipate plant stress, and take action before production is negativly affected.

Hortau’s team of Ag Scientists has leveraged decades of research to create optimal soil tension parameters for each crop based on the growing cycle and an operation’s unique goals and challenges.

Together with personalized in-field support Hortau’s patented technology gives a grower information about the health of their plants in a way never before possible.
