mOasis CEO to Speak at Water-Tech Panel. Commonwealth Club Event Explores Solutions to Drought.
Union City, CA (PRWEB) March 10, 2013
mOasis (www.mOasisGel.com), a leader in agricultural water management technology, is pleased to announce that CEO Steve Hartmeier will speak as part of a panel discussion on water technology solutions that can potentially help ease the impact of California’s drought. The Aquatech event will be held at the Commonwealth Club of California, in San Francisco, on Tuesday, March 11, 2014 at 6:00pm.
The panel, which also includes CEO’s of other early-stage companies, will explore how technology, innovation, capital, and entrepreneurship can work together to solve the State’s water issues.
The agricultural sector in California is bracing for a drought of unparalleled magnitude and an upcoming hot-weather season where water supplies are at record lows. Growers looking for solutions have few options, and are evaluating technologies that can help them solve at least some of the issues.
mOasis’ newly-launched product, BountiGelTM, is a non-toxic soil additive that allows growers to optimize water usage for maximum crop yields and water conservation. Available in a variety of forms and applicable to a wide range of crops, the product incorporates innovative science that allows farmers to grow more with less water. The product increases the moisture holding capacity of soil, improving yields by reducing the stress on plants and seeds between irrigation cycles.
“With water shortages expected to be widespread throughout 2014, innovative products like BountiGel are coming online just in the nick of time,” said Hartmeier.
BountiGel was recently approved by regulatory officials in California and Arizona, and the company is now making it available for sale to growers. The company has been testing the product extensively in commercial trials, in coordination with UC Davis and California State University at Fresno, with impressive results.
“The future in California is going to be all about water” added Hartmeier. “Given how much our State, and our nation, depends on California agriculture, and given the fact that water is a zero-sum game, the stakes couldn’t be higher.”
Based in Union City, CA, mOasis specializes in the application of science to create innovative products which address current challenges in agriculture. Using advanced, proprietary chemistry, the Company manufactures BountiGel™ a non‐toxic soil additive that allows growers to optimize water resources for maximized crop yields and water conservation. The company is also exploring water management technology applications beyond traditional crops, such as seed treatments, solutions to soil erosion, and municipal and consumer applications. The company’s vision is to promote economic and environmental sustainability in agriculture. For more information, please visit http://www.mOasisGel.com
