New Logo Announcement

We are proud to announce the launch of a new company logo as part of the evolution of our company brand.

In 2013, Dynamax hit an exciting milestone with being in business for 25 years. With the success we’ve achieved in twenty five years of operation, we are looking ahead and planning for the next twenty five.

It is the perfect time to evaluate our company’s brand and logo to ensure it was in sync with who we are and where we are going. After careful consideration, we chose a new logo that represents our area of business with a more modern look. We are proud to announce the launch of the new logo as part of the ongoing evolution to our brand.

The task in the upcoming months will be to update all our brochures, manuals, business cards, etc. with our new logo.  We realize that changing a logo is a process that can involve many steps and take some time, so we will finalize it gradually.

If you have used the Dynamax logo in any of your marketing materials, please assist us in updating them. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Dynamax demonstrated new Sap Flow sensors which readily monitor water consumption and water stress in almond trees

Mike van Bavel, Dynamax President, discussed the latest developments in water saving techniques with sap flow results at a test site on the FSU campus. "The plant health monitoring technique was quite comparable to having a blood pressure cuff on a persons arm at the doctor's office, for 24 hours a day", according to Mike. The sap sensor data tracked the water consumption continuously every day for 4 months in a test site, measuring stress when water was cut back, and quantified recovery after irrigation. Each day the results were transmitted wirelessly to a special web site that collected and analyzed the results. These sap flow sensors can be used on most crops and trees.

A record size audience of Almond growers and experts attended the Irrigation workshop sponsored by the Center for Irrigation Technology and PG&E Water Use Efficiency for the San Joaquin Valley Specialty Program. Since the event was overbooked, A webinar is planned for November, for those in the California central valley and elsewhere who were not able to attend.

New technology demonstrated by Dynamax showed how easily water stress and water consumed by Almond trees can be measured with new sap flow sensors.

Dynamax Opens Fresno Office

Dynamax Inc. of Houston, Texas, a provider of sap flow, soil moisture, and weather equipment for more than 25 years, has expanded by opening a new office in the Water, Energy and Technology Center on the campus of Fresno State University. It is our hope that the patented Dynamax sap flow sensors, which measure plant water use directly, can be used to help growers of California maximize their crop production while increasing water use efficiency.

Dynamax offers “real-time” plant water use monitoring for crops and trees using the SapIP system and sensors. Hourly water use and daily water use totals of sample plants are displayed and graphed on the AgriSensors webpage on the Internet. If daily water use declines over time, the amount of reduction can be used to measure drought stress, and irrigation can be applied accordingly. Plant water use, soil moisture or weather data can be collected and graphically displayed with the SapIP system. If weather data is collected, a Crop Water Stress Factor can be calculated and used to schedule irrigation.

Dynamax sap flow sensors work well on: Almond, Grape, Pear, Apple, Peach, Plum, Pistachio, Cherry, Citrus, Blackberries, Raspberries, Strawberries, Avocado, Hazelnut, Walnut, Pecan, Corn, Sunflower, Cotton, Soybeans, and many other crops.
