Precision Irrigation to Optimize Water Resources
The need for uniform and accurate water delivery to the crop throughout its life-cycle is essential to maximizing yield and maintaining the health of the plant. We at Valmont® Irrigation recognize this, and that's why we offer several solutions to your precision water application challenges.
Valley Variable Rate Irrigation (VRI)
With a combination of hardware and software, patented Valley Variable Rate Irrigation (VRI) allows you to customize water application based on topography information, soil data maps, yield data, and other user-defined information. Based on your VRI Prescription, you’re applying water only where it needs to be. So, you are not applying water to unnecessary areas in your field, such as: ditches, canals, buildings, and boggy areas.
VRI is precision agriculture made easy. You can wirelessly upload your VRI Prescription to your center pivot with Valley and AgSense® remote communication products. And because you can wirelessly upload your prescription, you can quickly make changes as your water application needs change in the field. Don't use remote communication? You can also hard-wire upload your prescriptions directly to your computerized control panel.
With VRI, you can:
- Make all areas in your field more profitable
- Reduce runoff, which can help your soil's health and the environment
- Increase water and chemical application efficiency
- RELAX — you know that your precious water resources are being used wisely!
Valley precision irrigation equipment enhances your agriculture productivity.
We understand that not all fields are the same, and not all growers’ needs are the same. This is why we are the only company in the industry to offer many VRI options:
