Lindsay Corporation announces FieldNET Pivot Control, an upgrade for almost every brand of pivot to full remote irrigation control and monitoring capabilities.
Many growers today manage multiple brands of irrigation systems. This requires operators to understand various types of pivot control panels, which take time to learn and could lead to operator error.
Pivot Control can change the way growers manage their irrigation by providing a single consistent irrigation experience.
Lindsay Corporation says Pivot Control is simple and intuitive, and is a plug-in-play system.
Pivot Control mounts at the pivot point and combines with GPS at the end of the pivot for increased precision and greater flexibility. Growers can operate a pivot in the field at the control box or remotely using FieldNET.
Both elements automatically update together minimizing the chance for user error.
Growers can control pivots and equipment, including pumps, injectors, and monitor sensors for pressure, flow, soil moisture, rainfall, temperature, and other devices with a smartphone, tablet, or computer.
The system sends alerts to the growers’ phone to notify them of any irrigation issues.
Pivot Control comes standard with 360-sector variable rate irrigation (VRI), offering twice the number of sectors available on most basic VRI products.
