Roots Sustainable Agricultural Technologies Limited (ASX:ROO) has launched its next-generation agricultural solution that combines plant irrigation and fertigation functions with its revolutionary heat exchange probe technology. 

The first-of-its-kind offering combines root heating and cooling with irrigation and fertilisation through a single system.

Roots has identified a number of potential customers in Israel and more broadly, is confident that it will secure first purchase orders shortly.

“Major milestone”

Roots executive chairman and chief executive officer Boaz Wachtel said: “Introducing this multi-purpose, next-generation solution to our customer base is a major milestone for the company and we are confident that it will be very well received.

“By combining irrigation and fertigation solutions with our revolutionary heat probe, we offer farmers and growers a way to considerably reduce their capital expenditure.

“We will make the solution available to our customer base in Israel and internationally in the coming weeks and we anticipate first purchase orders shortly thereafter.

“Interest from our retail partners and existing customer base has been very promising.”

Substantial cut in costs for farmers

The new multi-purpose solution will considerably decrease costs for farmers and growers through the one system installation, resulting in considerable reduction in ongoing labour costs.

It allows growers to couple various irrigation emitters including drip, nozzle and sprayers to its probe technology, as well as combine liquid fertilisers with the irrigation function for plant fertigation through a single piping system.

The new technology is supported by a strong intellectual property portfolio, which is protected by existing design and utility patents.

Unlike existing solutions, its new offering will rely on energy-efficient heat pumps and ground source heat exchange to optimise root zone temperature year-round.

This will be pivotal as Roots targets customers in the covered cultivation space.
