We know that you trust what your neighbors, friends, family and peers have to say about a product. And why wouldn't you? Would you purchase a new car that someone else you know said was the worst thing ever? Probably not.
The same thought process holds true for your irrigation equipment and technology. We've spent years gathering honest feedback from our growers. Here are some things that they have to say about BaseStation3™.
“BaseStation2™ let me monitor and control my pivots from just about anywhere, even from the tractor. BaseStation3 is even better. The mobile app is extremely user-friendly. I’m using it on my iPhone® and iPad® now and hardly ever use my desktop anymore.”
“BaseStation has changed the way I farm. I’m able to get more work done with less people. I’m able to have more time at home. I know when there’s an emergency and I know when there are things that can wait and fit my schedule instead of my schedule being dictated by the pivots.”

“It allows you to monitor everything so much faster. Before, you’d start a pivot and it seemed like you would just get over the hill and it would quit, but you wouldn’t realize it had quit until you went back there to check it again. But with BaseStation you don’t have to be watching all the time. You get a text message or an email on your phone and you can see what’s happening right away and deal with it.”
“I can always know what’s going on – hour to hour – through the day."
“Without it, we’d have to drive out to the field, get out of the vehicle and start the pivot. Then we’d have to drive around and check on all the pivots and stop each pivot at the end of the day. That’s a lot of labor to factor in.”

“We have some issues with our [filter] screens getting plugged. With BaseStation3, we can set the pressure so I’m alerted. If the pressure is starting to drop, I know I have a screen issue.”
“Our biggest benefit of Valley VRI is we are placing water where the plants need it, and we’ve seen yield benefit for that.”
“Instead of jumping out of bed at 2 a.m. to drive out and check on my pivots, I can roll over and check my phone. I know where the pivots are, and I know if I can wait until morning to handle anything that comes up. It’s peace of mind, and it’s hard to put a value on the sense of security that offers.”
“With advanced irrigation technology, I get more time with my family. I’m not always running out to the fields and checking on my pivots because I can control them all from my house. I can be watching TV and see that I need to switch a pivot, so then I can just get my phone out and can switch the pivots right there from the living room."
