PhyTech LTD, the leader in
the field of monitoring and analyzing of plant conditions (Phytomonitoring)
announced today the opening of a sales, support and distribution office for the
North American market.
"We want to provide the best possible support to our customers in North America"
said Dr. Oded Sagee, VP Business Development who added: "Our leading edge
sensors, communication, and analysis tools are proven to reduce cultivation cost
and improve yield in green houses, vineyards, vegetable farms, orchards, and
citrus groves around the world. Local support is essential to build the
partnership our customers expect and deserve".
"The future of horticulture involves phytomonitoring. Knowledge has business
value, and Phytomonitoring is empowering growers by delivering real time,
accurate information about plant and environmental conditions" said Dror
Shmerling, North America Sales Manager. We used to say "If trees could talků
with our systems, not only trees can "talk", they can make phone calls!" Mr.
Doron Abramovitch, CEO of the company noted that the goal for 2004 is to deliver
100 systems to growers, research organizations and agronomic support companies
in the US and Canada.
PhyTech's phytomonitoring technology is based on state-of-the-art sensors
attached to the plants and capable of reading various physiological parameters.
The parameters are then used as indicators of the stress level of the plant and
help the user to know if the plant needs irrigation or is growing to its optimal
capacity. The data from the sensors is wirelessly transmitted to a remote
computer and then processed with tailor made software. The user receives on his
computer screen all the necessary data for guiding him to make the appropriate
agronomic decisions which will maximize his yields, crop quality and eventually
his income and profits.
