Viridix launches next-generation precision irrigation system

Share this article

Viridix Ltd. has launched the Gen3 precision irrigation system with AI-based autonomous capabilities – the system connects with remote monitoring and irrigation control solutions.

Viridix's Gen3 Auto-Pilot system is comprised of Viridix's RooTense, a water potential sensor that mimics the plant roots and provides real time data, alongside the company's unique AI-based software that aggregates the RooTense data with external data from other sources, such as water pressure sensors, air humidity and temperature sensors, and remote watering controllers, and analyzes it all to provide operational insights, enabling the system to make and act on autonomous decisions.

Customers can now monitor the root's activity and implement a smart irrigation protocol across their farms in real time, field by field, adjusting irrigation levels according to live conditions. The advanced system uses artificial intelligence to recommend the exact adjustments required to dose the optimum irrigation for individual crops.

"With the introduction of the new Viridix Gen3 Auto-Pilot system, we are unlocking new experiences and setting the standard of performance for precision irrigation," stated Tal Maor, CBO and co-founder of Viridix. "The launch of this new technology is a result of our commitment to invest in the development of innovative and effective solutions that increase crop productivity for improved environmental sustainability.”
