Our Patented Technology

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

Hortau’s soil tension sensors report back readings in real-time allowing a grower to anticipate plant stress and take action. 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. Growers can then use Hortau’s unique mobile app platform to check soil tension levels across properties and adjust irrigation schedules as needed to avoid plant stress.

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.
