In today’s market, it is more important than ever for growers to make the most of all their cropland to get the highest possible yield. For many growers, this means irrigating land that may be difficult to reach with traditional center pivots.
Valmont® Irrigation, the manufacturer of the Valley® brand of irrigation equipment, is expanding its Bender product line with a new anchor package that extends the reach of irrigation machines even further. Valley Bender products allow a center pivot to bend and wrap around in-field obstacles, irrigating the acres behind it. The new Bender Anchor allows growers to use Benders on longer machines and on rough or rolling terrain to irrigate even more hectares.
Only Valmont Irrigation offers an anchor for its bending units because only Valley pivots have the strength to handle long Bender machines, said Valmont Irrigation Vice President of Global Marketing Matt Ondrejko.
“Our studies found that growers can increase their profits just by irrigating more of the land they already have,” Ondrejko said. “The new Bender Anchor extends those irrigated hectares at a low per-hectare cost, improving yield and profit.”
