Peace of mind and time with friends and family are important to you. Irrigation technology allows you to monitor your irrigation equipment from anywhere. This gives you back time to spend with your loved ones or to do other work on the farm, while still knowing that your irrigation equipment is running when you need it to. Here are 8 reasons why you should be controlling your irrigation with technology.
Reason #8 – Stay informed from anywhere
If you've ever had your center pivot shut down on you only moments after you leave the field, you know the frustration that can bring! On top of it, your crops aren't getting the water you thought they were getting. With telemetry technology for irrigation, you can make these things of the past.
Reason #7 – Increase yield by eliminating access roads and expanding irrigated acres
Telemetry technology allows you to work from anywhere. Literally. And because of this, the trips to your center pivot point may not need to happen anymore. Without the need to use a pivot road, you may gain back valuable ground to grow more crop.
Reason #6 – Monitor soil moisture
You can practically grow anything! Except more water. Soil moisture monitoring technology gets rid of the guesswork and enables you to apply the correct amount of water when and where it's needed.
Reason #5 – Make good decisions from your data
With today's growing world and shrinking fresh water resources, advanced reporting is a necessity, but you don't have the time to wade through all of your data to make sense of it. The latest irrigation reporting technology will save you time by tying all of your equipment back to one location.
Reason #4 – Save fuel and vehicle wear and tear
While fuel costs might be down, temporarily, vehicle maintenance costs are rising. Without the need to drive out to your fields to start, stop or check on your equipment, itcan greatly reduce the wear and tear on your truck.
Reason #3 – Conserve water and save time
More water doesn't always mean higher yield. With telemetry technology on your side, you can set a start and stop time for your irrigation, which will save you water and time.
Reason #2 – Improve your quality of life and your peace of mind
A full night's sleep? Dinner with the family? Time for your kid's game? These are some of the things that you'll realize you've been missing. Telemetry technology can help you out by giving you the most valuable gift - the gift of time.
Reason #1 – Gain greater efficiency with variable rate irrigation
With variable rate irrigation (VRI), you'll see improved uniformity of your water application, which will help you avoid overwatering areas of your field. Again - more water doesn't always mean higher yield.
