Saturas’s sensing system comprises miniature implanted sensors and wireless transponders that can measure Stem Water Potential (SWP), a metric that’s widely-recognized as one of the most accurate for determining the water status of plants.

Current methods of obtaining an SWP measurement are labor intensive and expensive, according to a Saturas. The company says its sensor is the only one that is embedded in tree trunks, providing direct contact with tree/plant water tissues. This enables an accurate measurement of the water status of the plant and eliminates any inaccuracies that are associated with placing sensors in the soil, or on leaves and branches. The company raised a $1 million second round of funding in early 2016. 

AgFunderNews caught up with Solomon to learn more about her journey as a CEO after five years in agtech, in this next installment of our female founder and CEO Series.
