Are you looking for a way to keep track of the pivots on your farm? The Valley® Irrigation Run Time™ mobile application is a free, new resource that calculates pivot cycles and helps you track run time. With the full mobility of a smartphone or tablet, you can add notes on each machine for access any time, anywhere, no matter what brand of pivot you use.
Our friends at Valley® Irrigation have a revolutionary new way to control your center pivot. Through the Valley ICON10™ and ICON1™ smart panels equipped with Valley ICON WiFi Access, and their Valley ICON Mobile App, you can access and control your panel remotely through your connected mobile device.
Because Valley is committed to continuous improvement, the Valley ICON mobile app release 2.0 (available for Apple and Android devices) provides growers with the functionality to configure multiple Valley ICON panel devices to a single wifi network. Growers will also gain more flexibility with farm networking and will be able to opt one-to-one or one-to-many device configuration when setting up and connecting to devices.
As you fly across the country (or anywhere in the world) and see the perfect green circles covering the ground, it is easy to pick out the fields with center pivot irrigation. Looking closely, you may see a field that isn’t a perfect green circle, but is in fact almost square. This indicates a center pivot with a corner arm.
