Roots Sustainable Agricultural Technologies has strengthened its intellectual property portfolio, following the receipt of a Notice of Allowance from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for the Company’s Heat Exchange Probe technology. This is a crucial step towards patent protection in the US and highlights that an application is complete and meets all requirements for a patent to be issued.
The Heat Exchange Probe is designed to heat or cool plants substrates in pots, grow bags, and soil. The innovative technology is compatible with the Company’s Root Zone Temperature Optimization (RZTO) system, allowing for seamless and cost-effective installation and operation. The Heat Exchange Probe cools or heats the root zone area with the help of efficient heat pumps, allowing farmers to reduce air heating and cooling expenditures, creating a sustainable solution for the agricultural industry.
Roots CEO, Boaz Wachtel said: “Receiving the Notice of Allowance for our Heat Exchange Probe technology is a great achievement and follows a long and complex application process.
“We are delighted that we can now securely sell our product in the US, which is a large and important agricultural market. Now with patent approval, we have the ability to further our foothold in the region and remain well placed to capitalize on potential growth opportunities.
“Having invested significantly into our R&D initiatives to validate the effectiveness of the Heat Exchange Probe, our IP position is now strengthened across several global markets with huge potential for application. As the challenge of food security becomes more prevalent, our technology will assist producers to increase crop yield and quality, providing an attractive solution for growers to increase local cultivation and reduce their carbon footprint.
