Published on: May 5, 2011

Even more precision is now available for irrigators with Valley Irrigation's new Cruise Control for pivots, a development Valley says will do for irrigators what GPS did for auto steer on tractors.

With Cruise Control, producers can program a center pivot irrigation rig 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 is aimed at allow more precise control of chemigation and fertigation through sprinklers to make sure a given amount of product is applied to a given amount of farm land -- with no overlaps or untreated "wedges" of the circle.

Valley Irrigations Pro2 control panel will come standard with Cruise Control from now on, and existing panels can be readily upgraded.
