In ancient times, people used to detect the presence of water. A team of environmentally committed entrepreneurs created divirod in Boulder CO as a modern, updated version of this classic tool to provide scientifically based water readings to meet the needs of a fast-changing world.

In the USA alone, there are about 920 million acres of agricultural land. According to the USGS, in 2010 about 65 million acres were irrigated and consumed more than 110 billion gallons of water per day, which accounted for almost 40% of the freshwater withdrawals. Irrigation systems informed by soil moisture monitoring have already reported savings in the order of 30%. If you care for our planet, using divirod’s technology and data services you can be part of a community that saves collectively millions of gallons of water across the nation!

Monitoring soil characteristics helps farmers manage crops by anticipating water excess or deficits and focusing on plants health. Together with a potential increase of crop yield, an efficient water management system helps reducing operational costs and improving crops quality, which translates in higher price points for the crop sale. Any irrigation system from drip to center pivots can be powered by divirod technology and analytics.

Recreational parks across the country, sports facilities and golf courses require constant usability in top conditions not only to satisfy their users but also to preserve the assets these facilities represent. Timely and adequate irrigation is key to this process and divirod is ready to enable it.

Constant changes in climate pose challenges to water management institutions and environmental agencies around the World. Managing adequately water capacity of reservoirs helps overcome long periods of drought. The technology developed by divirod offers accurate monitoring and forecasting capabilities to optimize water consumption.
