Plants, People, and our Planet
we are all connected and interdependent. Learn how we help strengthen these connections for a more sustainable future
KEEPING PLANTS HAPPY
Not surprisingly, Plant-based Farming starts with healthy plants. Trees can "tell" their growers when and how much to irrigate. The result: happier trees, healthier food, and more oxygen for everyone.

TREES ARE JUST LIKE KIDS
We've created the world's first growth charts for trees. Based on data from millions of the same trees, growers can track the health of their trees by comparing them against a benchmark

CHANGING PRACTICES, CREATING A CHANGE
By being able to listen to their trees, growers all over the world are adapting their long-held irrigation strategies. The result: unprecedented water savings
SAVING 600 MEGALITERS IN JUST ONE FARM
Select Harvests, one of the world's leading almond growers, presented a sustainability case study of water efficiency which involves the deployment of Phytech's technology. "At one farm alone, this data-driven approach has saved over 600 megaliters of water a year"
DIFFERENT VARIETIES, DIFFERENT DEMANDS
Australian almond growers managed to save approx. 80 billion liters during 2019 by applying different irrigation strategies for their pollinators and Nonpareils. Different varieties have different water demands, you just have to listen closely
A SWEET BREAKTHROUGH
Common practices for achieving high BRIX include deficit irrigation which might harm trees' health or applying hormones. The BRIX reference give growers a more efficient, and eco-friendly method to reach their goal
LESS IS MORE
"Following Phytech's recommendations in corn yielded 251 bushels per acre; 10% under-irrigating yielded 239, and 10% over-irrigating yielded 232", said Ryan Speer of Jacob Farms and Cattle in Sedgwick, Kansas.
SAVING HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF GALLONS
"We can skip irrigations. We can skip days. When you add that up over the course of a year, it's thousands of dollars and hundreds of thousands of gallons of water",explains Al Stehly from Stehly grove management

KNOW YOUR TREES
"Water supply is crucial, but with Phytech I can actually know what the tree needs", says Hayden McIntyre, Farm manager of Sierra Pacific Farms and a 3rd generation grower

PROTECTING OUR LUNGS
During the process of photosynthesis, trees take in CO2 and produce the oxygen we breathe. So happier, healthier trees means mother nature's lungs are more productive. The result: more oxygen and less carbon dioxide
DATA IS THE KEY
"We're able to save water because we have clear visibility of our orchards". Antony Yousefian, Ag-Tech Director of Bardsley England and Co-founder of Bx, has a mission to produce fresh food that can reverse climate change.
