VALLEY, Neb.-Valley Irrigation, a technology leader in precision irrigation, introduces GPS Guidance for linear irrigation equipment.

GPS Guidance will increase accuracy and precision of linear irrigation equipment when compared with conventional irrigation guidance. It also will help eliminate some maintenance issues associated with existing guidance options. While producers always have taken pride in planting straight rows, GPS Guidance has enabled them to plant even straighter.

The precision of GPS Guidance technology is very evident when the grower compares the "straight line" guidance of GPS to the conventional linear guidance options-producers can now irrigate in the same straight lines they planted. This minimizes variances in water application, which in turn maximizes yields.

Valley GPS Guidance works with virtually all linear irrigation equipment and is compatible with John Deere Starfire RTK.

GPS Guidance for linear irrigation equipment is the latest GPS product innovation from Valley Irrigation.

Valley is currently field testing GPS Guidance for use with corner pivot irrigation. Pending trial results, the company anticipates GPS Guidance for corner pivots will be available in 2010.

GPS Guidance is available through Valley dealers. Producers should contact their local Valley dealer.
