Hortau makes it easy for pistachio growers to know when to water. We work with our growers to eliminate guesswork by providing a precise measurement of just how much water is available to the plant in any particular block. This data allows growers to account for soil variations within an orchard and avoid both extremely dry conditions that overly stress trees and excessively wet conditions that result in a loss of nutrients and an anaerobic environment.

Hortau’s grower support team has worked with pistachio growers for over a decade, helping them meet their production goals. We would welcome the opportunity to speak with you about your orchard.

Grower Testimonials

Ryan Porto of Porto Brothers Farming in Kerman, CA, on growing pistachios with the Hortau.

“The year before we starting using Hortau we planted an orchard and had about a 30% mortality,” Porto said. “The first field with Hortau was a ninety acre block and we had a total of six trees die in ninety acres. We are so happy.”
