Jain Irrigation acquired ETwater. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The transaction will close shortly after certain customary conditions are met.

“Jain is the technology leader for irrigation monitoring and control, and we are thrilled to have ETwater join our family,” said Aric Olson, president of Jain Irrigation. “After several successful irrigation technology acquisitions, the addition of ETwater, the pioneer of smart irrigation control, adds key technologies that can be deployed globally to our growing technology customer base.”

Olson adds, “I’m also excited to have Richard Restuccia leading this team now. He is an industry thought leader for smart controllers and technology for water management.”

Before joining Jain Irrigation in 2014, Restuccia was director of water management at ValleyCrest Cos. (now Brightview).

ETwater is a provider of cloud-based smart irrigation. Its patented technology integrates data science, machine learning and predictive analytics about weather forecast and environmental variables to automatically adjust site-specific irrigation schedules.

“We’re very proud of the positive impact on outdoor water conservation we’ve had in the U.S. market,” said Pat McIntyre, CEO of ETwater. “Our customers entrust us with driving the automation of their water efficiency. We’ve kept their landscapes healthy and beautiful, while eliminating the waste, damages and costs that result from overwatering. The Jain acquisition will expand ETwater efficiencies throughout the U.S. and now worldwide to become a gold standard in sustainable water management globally.”
