The merger will accelerate their efforts in this area and create a ripple effect in the industry. As industry leaders, they will set the standards for the industry. This includes everything from product quality to environmental sustainability.
For example, both companies have excellent tape offerings with Chapin drip tape and T-Tape and a complete offering of products to support drip irrigation in the field. Chapin drip tape was the first drip tape in the United States, developed in 1960 by Dick Chapin. T-Tape in 1987 evolved into the wide use of drip tape on a large scale. Combine this with the technology offering of Manna and Jain Logic, and this combined company becomes incredibly competitive and difficult to match in the industry.
Manna, an irrigation intelligence leader, provides growers with actionable information to make accurate irrigation decisions. This is done using high-resolution satellite information. Using satellite information and soil moisture sensors, Jain Logic helps farmers optimize water consumption, reduce costs, and improve productivity. Combining these two products creates a new high bar for the industry.
