Zimmatic® by Lindsay systems are operating in over 90 countries, irrigating 4.8 million hectares (12 million acres) of crops. It has manufactured and distributed agricultural irrigation equipment for nearly 60 years from its original location, the town of Lindsay, Nebraska, in the center of the United States. Lindsay products and systems help growers around the world conserve water, increase crop production, and reduce costs such as fuel and labor.
