January 2, 2024

Lumo, an agtech company that tackles water challenges, announces a trial of its irrigation technology with Treasury Americas, a division of the global wine company, Treasury Wine Estates (TWE), in Napa, Calif.

In a news release, Lumo stated it aims to help growers revolutionize the way they manage water in their vineyards, empowering them to automate and closely monitor irrigation activities.

“Efficient irrigation is paramount in bridging the gap between water usage and the quality of fruit,” said Devon Wright, Lumo CEO and founder.

Currently, 24 of Lumo’s smart irrigation valves are being utilized by TWE, allowing the company to manage irrigation on 90 acres of Napa vineyard land. Lumo stated the trial with TWE should provide evidence of how Lumo’s advanced water technology can help to improve operational efficiencies while aiding in water conservation.
