Valmont Irrigation, the leader in precision irrigation, introduced the Cruise Control™ feature for Valley Pro2 control panels.
With Cruise Control, available exclusively from Valmont Irrigation, producers can program a center pivot irrigation machine equipped with a Pro2 control panel to automatically adjust its speed, based on completing a defined number of degrees in a specific amount of time. This feature will help producers more precisely manage chemigation and fertigation through their center pivot irrigation equipment.
John Rasmus, Controls Product Manager for Valmont Irrigation, said that growers should find Cruise Control very easy to use.
“Producers already have a lot of individual elements to manage in the day-to-day operation of their farms, and they only have so many hours in the day,” said Rasmus. “So, we made sure Cruise Control would be simple to operate.”
Cruise Control will be standard in all Pro2 panels in spring 2011. Existing Pro2 control panels can be easily upgraded with the Cruise Control feature.
