  • Notes 
    • In 1953, Sheldon, the son of a local citrus grower who was one of Prosser's first customers, joined the Company as its Sales Manager and began the growth of The IRROMETER Company worldwide. In the late 1980's, the Company expanded its product line with the addition of the WATERMARK soil moisture sensor which it acquired from its inventor, Glenn Larson. Sometimes referred to as the most important development in soil moisture measurement since the original IRROMETER, the low cost and reliable technology of the WATERMARK sensor has made a major impact on the large scale use of soil moisture measurement technology by production agriculture throughout the world.
