Valmont Industries, Inc., a leading global provider of engineered products and services for infrastructure and mechanized irrigation equipment for agriculture, announced that it has acquired a majority interest in South Dakota-based AgSense (www.agsense.net). The acquisition further extends Valmont’s industry leading offerings in remote monitoring and control technology for agriculture.

AgSense’s cutting edge global WagNet network provides growers with a more complete view of their entire farming operation by tying irrigation decision making to field, crop and weather conditions.

“We are pleased to have entered this long-term partnership,” said Leonard Adams, Group President of Valmont’s Global Irrigation Division. “Growers increasingly seek to utilize data driven technology to increase yields and maximize water efficiency. The cutting edge approach AgSense takes to providing technologies that our customers desire, their passion for customer service and their outstanding reputation fit perfectly with Valmont’s strategy. Combining AgSense with our industry-leading BaseStation products will deliver the most comprehensive line of integrated solutions available to the market.”

AgSense President Terry Schiltz said the similarities in customer-focused values led to the creation of this strategic alignment. “We are very excited about this partnership with Valmont,” Schiltz said. “Partnering with the recognized market leader not only enhances our strong position in North America, but will provide opportunities to accelerate our growth internationally.”
