Phytech Commercializes Plant-Based Irrigation Application for Industrial Hemp

May 6, 2019

TEL AVIV, Israel & DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 6, 2019--Phytech announces commercialization of its Industrial Hemp Plant-Based irrigation application, following successful development of optimal growth, stress and yield outcomes, conducted by Phytech’s R&D teams in Israel and Colorado, led by Dr. Omer Guy, Dr. Shalom Fox and Dr. Ido Gardi, with collaboration of leading breeders, nurseries and growers in Colorado.

The application, as in all Phytech Plant-Based applications, comprises direct, in-season, continuous monitoring of plant growth parameters and applied irrigation (by proprietary sensors), micro-climate conditions, forecasts and imagery analysis, delivering real-time Plant status push notifications and Plant AI- based irrigation demands (when and how much to irrigate).

The unique Hemp application will assist growers to optimize yields by reducing over-irrigation and stress events that may lead to an increase in THC levels (>0.3%) leading to total loss of crop.

The Phytech Hemp application service is commercially available and supported in Colorado & California for the 2019 season.

Phytech is thankful for the trust of leading growers in Colorado who have signed agreements to implement the Phytech service across their Hemp sites during the coming 2019 season.
