Fields are green and full, the days are already starting to get shorter, and “Back to School” ads are all over the television. These are also signs that farm show season is here.
Farm show season is an especially busy time for me because I travel to as many shows as I can fit into my schedule. There is no better place to meet with Valley® dealers, customers, future Valley customers, non-Valley farmers, industry experts, international travelers, first year farmers and even students. All of them attend farm shows to learn about what’s new and exciting with center pivot irrigation and in the field of ag.
Valley will be attending the following farm shows:
Farm Progress Show, Aug. 29 – Aug. 31, booth 1234
Husker Harvest Days, Sept. 12 – Sept. 14, booth 7
Sunbelt Ag Expo, Oct. 17 – Oct. 19, booth A-4-169
We will also be attending the 3i Show, Irrigation Association, Amarillo Farm Show, Nebraska Power Farming Show and the Potato Expo.
So, what’s new at the Valley booth this year? A LOT!
There’s no question that our all-new Valley ICON® series of panels has been a huge hit since their release in January - thousands of Valley ICON smart panels have already been sold worldwide. If you are one of the few growers that hasn’t seen one of the four new smart panels, I recommend you stop by one of our farm show booths and test drive the intuitive menu and vivid, full-color touchscreen displays for yourself. From the top-of-the-line Valley ICON10 to the ridiculously affordable Valley ICONX, there is sure to be a Valley ICON panel that is a perfect solution for your operation.
Valley Irrigation is now the exclusive distributor of the Trimble® Irrigate-IQ™ precision irrigation solution, providing growers with the most efficient drought solution available. Stop by a Valley farm show booth to speak with an expert on variable rate irrigation and learn how Irrigate-IQ VRI and Irrigate-IQ uniform corner can help you to maximize your yield and minimize your water consumption.
We are also always expanding our existing irrigation management technology. Restricted Entry is a popular new feature in BaseStation3™ that helps you to alert others when entry to a field is restricted and when it is safe to re-enter the field. Both BaseStation3 and AgSense® experts will be available to speak with at the Valley farm show booths this year – come in and discover how easy it is to upgrade your center pivot.
And these are just the new products that I can talk about! There are multiple new Valley products that will be announced very soon. Whether you are looking for a drought solution to implement for the next growing season or just want to see the latest and greatest in irrigation technology, come out to one the Valley farm show booths and speak with the experts.
