Cranberry growers in the Northeast have drastically cut back water use, thanks to improvements in soil tension monitoring. This Hortau user in Mass. is producing healthy fruit this summer without the need for a single irrigation (with the exception of two pesticide injections). Thanks to all of our cranberry growers who are doing their part this #smartirrigationmonth and every month! #precisionirrigation #agtech #cranberries #irrigation #water Photo: Hortau grower support Cody Jones

July is #smartirrigation month and a time to highlight growers who are doing their part to grow more with less. Did you know that since 1950, growers are producing 262% more food while using 2% less inputs according to data from the American Farm Bureau? Hortau units in this bell pepper field near San Luis Obispo, Calif. help the grower deliver water to the crop only when its needed, improving wetting patterns that ensure optimal soil moisture levels in the root zone, while maximizing the crops health.
