VALLEY, Neb.-Valley Irrigation, a technology leader in precision irrigation, recently introduced its new 5000 series. This latest addition to the comprehensive line of irrigation equipment from Valley Irrigation is designed specifically for irrigation of production agriculture on small fields, from 10 to 60 acres. The 5000 series will help producers maximize water efficiency while improving productivity.
"The 5000 series is unlike any other options producers have for small fields because it was designed specifically for production ag," said Wade Sikkink, equipment product manager for Valley Irrigation. "Until now, growers that wanted or needed to irrigate fields smaller than 60 acres had limited options. They either chose labor intensive methods like flood or solid set, or tried to make equipment do things it wasn't designed to do, which isn't very efficient. A single phase power option is also available, which will be very attractive to those customers where three-phase power is not readily available."
