VALLEY, Neb.-Valley Irrigation, the leader in precision irrigation, introduces the addition of QuickStart (QS) prescription writing to its Variable Rate Irrigation (VRI) product, allowing growers to customize their water application throughout their field.

"VRI Speed Control is already built into the Valley Select2 and Pro2 control panels, and now with the new QS prescription service, growers can immediately implement VRI into their operation," says Cole Fredrick, VRI Product Manager at Valley Irrigation.

The Valley VRI Agronomy Team develops the one-time, custom QS prescription based on soil maps, aerial imagery, yield data and other relevant information about the field provided by the grower. When this information is provided with new orders, the QS prescription is preloaded in new Valley Select2 and Pro2 control panels. QS prescriptions are also available to growers with existing center pivots wanting to utilize Variable Rate Irrigation through panel upgrades and by using TrackNET and BaseStation2 products.
