The collaboration is set to transform how growers make weather-informed irrigation decisions by offering a more robust solution.
Leading intelligent irrigation software, Manna Irrigation, and Pessl Instruments, announced today their collaboration to introduce the first virtual-station based irrigation scheduling solution. The partnership will be a system integration offering that will bring more robust, personalized, and accurate irrigation recommendations to growers, powered by their local weather data.
Pessl Instruments customers will be able to leverage their existing source of Pessl Instruments-generated weather data to be used for irrigation scheduling with Manna, without the need to manage any additional hardware. Users of iMETOS Weather service will be able to seamlessly connect their account to their Manna Irrigation Intelligence service, enabling Manna’s recommendations to be based on ET0, rain, and other parameters monitored in the farm.
“We are proud to be partnering with the industry leader, Pessl Instruments, to bring any grower looking for a more personalized and accurate irrigation strategy” said CEO of Manna, Eyal Mor. “Growers already using Manna’s software and Pessl Instruments solutions are awaiting our joint system integration offering, and will be able to incorporate it seamlessly into their existing system, enabling both companies to offer bundled solutions.»
“Pessl Instruments is a company with the vision of global collaboration with industry leaders, therefore we believe that the interface with Manna will bring our joint clients new opportunities to use the best from both end – IOT from Pessl and AI from Manna to optimize the resources usage on farms,” said Gottfried Pessl the CEO and founder of Pessl Instruments. “The Covid-19 crisis has shown us how fundamentally important food security is, and farmers can ensure the food supply and that they protect the environment at the same with smart technology” added Gottfried Pessl.
