DOTS – The first company with proven groundbreaking technology for real-time nitrate monitoring in agricultural soils.
Modern Agriculture depends heavily on precise water and nutrient availability in the soil.
While technological means to monitor and control the soil-water conditions are well developed, monitoring and controlling the nutrient levels in the soil is still far from achieving the required resolution for both optimal plant growth and prevention of water resources pollution.
Due to the lack of real-time information on nutrient availability at the crop root level, Farmers tend to overdose the soil with fertilizers, to prevent potential crop damage related to nutrient deficiency.
Resultantly, a major portion of the implemented fertilizers is leached down to ground-water in the form of nitrate, leading to water resources pollution, and disqualification for human consumption.
Additionally, this also causes a major financial loss for the agricultural sector in terms of wasted fertilizers.
DOTS holds an enabler for real-time nitrate monitoring in agricultural soils, a key factor for optimizing fertilizer applications, improving crops and enhancing yields.
DOTS provides ground-breaking technology for real-time nitrate monitoring in agricultural soils.
DOTS developed a patented, innovative, electro-optical sensor, enabling real-time, automatic, high-rate data sampling, at the root level.
With DOTS, Fertilizers can now be precisely applied, only when required by the plants, and groundwater contamination can be practically eliminated.
