Game-changing technology for optimized water efficiency
Our innovative system has a strong track record for tangible transformation of soils, resource use, and plant health. In a new paradigm of sustainable water management, we enable better water penetration in soil micropores, improved nutrient uptake, and continued irrigation with saline water. This is true Swiss efficiency: fusing nature with technology and empowering growers to get the most out of every drop.
Harnessing cleantech for lasting solutions to vital issues
AQUA4D addresses the most pressing problems facing agriculture: water scarcity and land degradation. Our team of agronomists leverage their field experience to tackle a wide range of water management problems. Water-smart treatment enables precision irrigation by keeping soils moist for longer and improving the dissolution of minerals and fertilizers in irrigation water. AQUA4D growers in 40+ countries achieve the seemingly paradoxical: higher yields with less resources, while solving a range of persistent problems.

“In the context of modern, organic and sustainable agriculture, we recommend AQUA4D because it is considered a valuable, safe, practical and economical technology.”
Prof. Mohamed Hachicha, INRGREF / INRAE
“The biggest problem we have today is with water resources. AQUA4D makes the water-soil-plant interaction into an efficient system, enabling irrigation water savings of between 20% and sometimes even 50%.”
Enrique Rebaza, Agronomist, Peru
“We see how water and salt issues are inextricably related… our technology increases the capacity of water to transport salts in ionic form, meaning the water does not lose the salts into the soil, but rather moves salts below the root area.”
Walter K. Thut, Co-Founder AQUA4D, Switzerland
