The win grants Tal-Ya a $5000 cash prize, but much more importantly, raises the company’s profile considerably. The Imagine H2O competition also provided an opportunity for high-quality meetings with investors and potential customers active in the agriculture arena.
Following the win, Tal-Ya was featured in a CNN article “Drought-ravaged California turns to tech for help” as a technology which is well-positioned to help farmers combat the disastrous effects of the drought.
“We’ve seen a spike in interest over the last few days, thanks to the Imagine H2O competition and the coverage,” says Tal-Ya VP Marketing & Sales Mickey Chesla. “We feel the company is now experiencing great momentum, the market is ripe for our product, and we are ready, in commercial manufacturing mode. We are expanding our network of distributors around the world, and we’re already seeing the results of efforts.”
Tal-Ya distributor in California Chris Siems of Wilson Irrigation, who attended the Imagine H2O gala event, says “Tal-Ya trays have nearly unlimited potential in the US market, in a wide range of market sectors: Forestry, commercial agriculture, landscaping and gardening. The ability of Tal-Ya Trays to not just overcome growth limiting factors such as light, nutrients and water, but to counter act and actually multiply them make them utterly unique in the marketplace.”
