Hortec is a South African company with more than 20 years’ experience in the fruit industry. Previously linked to the research community, Hortec has since grown into a commercial company providing various services to the agriculture and food sectors. Their laboratories are accredited according to ISO 17025:2005 and provide a high-quality professional service which meets the requirements of local and export markets.
Irricheck is proud to announce that in June 2015, we formed a strategic partnership with Hortec’s Weather Services division, which provides important meteorological data to customers including weather station owners. Their customers have direct access through their web based software (iLeaf) to weather stations, weather forecasts, frost warnings, insect and disease models as well as various climate related temperature models.
Irricheck’s customers using Hortec’s Weather Services and iLeaf, will now receive their irrigation scheduling recommendations from Pulse™ using their own on farm iLeaf data, making their irrigation scheduling recommendations even more precise!
Irricheck is also an accredited sales representative for Hortec’s Weather Services.
