Plantae is dedicated to the design, development and commercialization of wireless sensor technology for saving water and improving crop production. That is why our product reaches the olive tree in Portugal , which manages to be the third largest producer of oil, after Spain and Italy with about 345,700 hectares of olive groves.

Plantae does not sell plants or advise on the varieties or typology of olive trees to be planted. We advise on the ideal way to use a resource as precious as irrigation water by controlling the humidity and salinity of crops.

Portugal is currently betting on intensive plantations, many with irrigation, which reduce costs and improve productivity and it is expected that in ten years it may exceed production in Spain.
