- Pulse - plant water stress sensor
FloraPulse sells an implantable microchip that directly measures how "thirsty" a plant is and provides accurate, timely information on when and how much to irrigate agricultural crops. The company uses this information to give growers scientifically-backed recommendations for managing their field to maximize crop yield, quality and water savings.
Based on over 10 years of research at Cornell University, FloraPulse was founded by two Cornell professors and a PhD graduate. The product builds on two Cornell patents, and an ongoing collaboration between Cornell researchers and FloraPulse. The company’s foundational technology is licensed from Cornell University.
