At Hortau, we work with our growers to help eliminate guesswork by providing a precise measurement of just how much water is available to the plant. This data allows growers to account for soil variations within a field and avoid both extremely dry conditions that overly stress plants and excessively wet conditions that result in a loss of nutrients and an anaerobic environment.

Hortau’s grower support team has worked with strawberry growers for over a decade, helping them meet their production goals and respond to the demands of the market. We would welcome the opportunity to speak with you about your operation.

Grower Testimonials

Pal Halstead, operations manager for El Rio Farms in Oxnard, Calif., on growing strawberries with Hortau.

“Before we just went off prior experience… and we were a bit set in our ways,” Halstead said. “ We can now be anywhere and see how much water we need. The amount of control is really nice.”
