FRESNO, CA – Jain Irrigation, Inc., (“Jain”), today announced the formation of their Field Monitoring and Control product platform, Jain Logic™. Jain Logic™ is the new face of Jain Irrigation, Inc.’s cloud-based precision irrigation offering. Jain Logic™ is the permanent crop platform for managing critical ranch attributes. After the successful acquisition of Observant in February 2017, Jain combined the strengths of their industry-leading PureSense cloud platform with the award-winning power and flexibility of the Observant Solo and C3 field stations. Customers can now access all the analytic insights from this integrated product line and the field-ready strength of the industry’s best hardware.
The combined product provides a new infiltration rate chart giving growers the ultimate tool for managing water and fertilizer within the root zone, helping deliver more crop per drop of water.
Jain Logic™ also provides flow meter monitoring and associated water reports directly sent to water districts. Many states are taking steps to make reporting water use in Agriculture mandatory. Jain Logic™ makes this process quick and easy for growers saving time and labor.
“Technology and innovation are core focus areas for Jain,” said Aric Olson, President of Jain Irrigation, Inc. “With Jain’s backing, farmers will have access to the best technology and the backing of a 30-year-old company with 11,000 associates. Jain has access to over ten years of irrigation data for multiple crops in a wide variety of field and weather conditions. This data is easily accessible to growers helping them make better decisions concerning water and fertilizer use to maximize yields. This accumulation of data is an excellent example of big data use for precision irrigation. ”
“In combination with our complementary products technologies from the United States, Australia, India, and Israel, we have unmatched capabilities to help farmers deliver on our promise of ‘More Crop per Drop’,” said Anil Jain, Managing Director of Jain Irrigation Systems Limited.
