Feb. 10, 2014 - PRLog -- TULARE, Calif. (Feb. 10, 2014) – Water issues and the drought’s negative impact on crop production will be the main topics of discussion at the 47th annual World Ag Expo on Feb. 11-13 in Tulare, Calif.

Hortau, Inc. (http://www.hortau.com/), a global leader in wireless, web-based irrigation management, will be on hand at the largest agricultural expo of its kind to discuss the stresses a drought puts on plants and trees, and how soil tension technologies can help growers improve yield and cut irrigation costs in the face of the today’s water issues.

The theme of this year’s World Ag Expo (https://www.worldagexpo.com/) is “Feeding Tomorrow’s World,” with more than 1,500 exhibitors scheduled to appear with an emphasis on cutting-edge agricultural technology.

Exhibiting at Booth 2524, Hortau will have consultants on hand throughout the show, demonstrating how its TX3 wireless irrigation management station combined with its simplified software, reports to growers how crops are faring in real time – before unseen stresses such as frost events, lack of aeration, or drought can have a negative impact on the crop.

Hortau’s patented, plant-centric approach to measuring soil tension allows growers to detect plant stress before it becomes visible in the crop, ensuring optimal plant growth, reducing water and energy use, while helping to eliminate fertilizer leaching and other environmental impacts of crop production.

“What our irrigation system does is it boosts crop performance and allows growers to manager their crop using real-time data,” Hortau CEO Jocelyn Boudreau said. “Using soil tension, we’re able to give growers a way to measure the amount of available water to a crop and keep the plants healthier at the same time.”
