Research & Development
Our competitive advantage derives from a unique fertigation technology and application which were developed over 10 years of intensive research and development. We hold two registered patents for irrigation according to root needs, and availability of dissolved oxygen to the roots.
Innovation in Action
Autoagronom's systems sample and monitor, in real-time, the chemical and physical changes in the upper levels of the root zone. Using various sensors (tensiometers, oxygen, pH and conductivity, and Nitrate calculations) each system collects data from the soil; performs computerized analysis; and, by utilizing fuzzy-control algorithms, automatically activates irrigation and fertilization.
The use of ultra-low drip systems with numerous daily pulse irrigation intervals creates a wet area in the soil and capilary movement of the water. Moreover, oxygen levels in the soil are kept high, enabling optimal conditions in the root zone. This is achieved only by an advanced fertigation method, using the same (but less) water and fertilizer the grower uses.
Our services to our partner growers include optimizing hydraulic designs; turn-key project management; on-site and on-line agronomic monitoring capabilities; and 24/7 technical support, all based on many years of experience and agronomic know how. The results speak for themselves, with a significant increase in crop yields (up to 30%), and sustainable farming (reducing up to 50% water and 70% fertilizer). Please contact us for additional information.
Our systems were successfully deployed and tested on 70 different crop types on over 2500 acers of open fields and green houses, consistently providing unprecedented results. Here are some examples of selected projects.
