(Vocus) April 30, 2010 -- Smartfield, Inc. is an information company that develops and supplies irrigation management solutions. The company was approved for $250,000 for completion and commercialization of their SmartCrop® technology. SmartCrop is a new simple irrigation management control where “the plant is the sensor™.” Patented by the Agriculture Research Service of the USDA, SmartCrop combines plant biology and agronomic science to precisely determine crop water demand. With a yearly web-based subscription service, Smartfield offers growers insights into crops’ irrigation needs. Growers are able to “listen to your crop®” and avoid over-watering. SmartCrop is the simple and affordable way to save water and maximize profits. Three other new technology products also being commercialized by Smartfield are SmartRate™ Pro, SmartWeather™, and PivotScout™.

“The support of the Texas Emerging Technology Fund (TEFT) has provided our company with early stage funding so necessary in bringing SmartCrop and our other products to market. Through Smartfield’s technologies, growers will recognize high yields while conserving energy and water. TETF's focus on fostering new green technologies is important for Texas,” said Tommy Martin, CEO of Smartfield, Inc.

Texas Governor Rick Perry signed the Texas Emerging Technology Fund in June 2005 to assist early-stage technology companies in expediting the commercialization of high-potential technology developments out of the lab and into the hands of consumers. Another element of the TETF enables Texas universities to establish research superiority by recruiting world-class researchers with experience in moving technologies into commercial applications.
