click image to zoom Valley Irrigation introduced the addition of QuickStart (QS) prescription writing to its Variable Rate Irrigation (VRI) product, allowing growers to customize their water application throughout their field.

“VRI Speed Control is already built into the Valley Select2 and Pro2 control panels, and now with the new QS prescription service, growers can immediately implement VRI into their operation,” says Cole Fredrick, VRI Product Manager at Valley Irrigation.

The Valley VRI Agronomy Team develops the one-time, custom QS prescription based on soil maps, aerial imagery, yield data and other relevant information about the field provided by the grower. When this information is provided with new orders, the QS prescription is preloaded in new Valley Select2 and Pro2 control panels. QS prescriptions are also available to growers with existing center pivots wanting to utilize Variable Rate Irrigation through panel upgrades and by using TrackNET and BaseStation2 products.    

Along with their field-specific, custom prescription, growers will also receive a copy of the Valley VRI Prescription Software. With this program, growers have the ability to modify and generate their own prescriptions as field conditions and crop requirements change. In addition, they can work with other precision ag companies to further enhance their VRI Prescriptions.

“We are excited about the addition of QS prescriptions to our product line because it gives growers a turnkey solution for implementing VRI into their operation”, says Fredrick. “It’s a Valley exclusive and we think it’s going to be very beneficial for the grower.”

VRI from Valley offers the ultimate in precision irrigation. With a combination of hardware and software, VRI allows the grower to adjust the desired amount of water in a particular sector (VRI Speed Control) or management zone (VRI Zone Control). If managed properly, growers using VRI have the ability to see both increased production and water conservation.
