Lindsay Corporation Takes Top Honors for Best New Agriculture Product at the Irrigation Association Show Held in Phoenix, Arizona, Nov. 19-20, 2014
Since its market introduction 10 months ago, Growsmart® by Lindsay’s MULTI-CONTROL for drip and micro-irrigation has received significant industry recognition--
1. Top Ten New Product-- World Ag Expo 2014

3. 2014 Best New Product, Agriculture-- Irrigation Association’s Irrigation Show & Education Conference
The MULTI-CONTROL for irrigation beat out 19 competing agriculture products for the top spot at last week’s Irrigation Show. Products were evaluated by a panel of judges based on innovation, increased water efficiency, ease of use, cost benefits, time savings and design quality.
“It feels terrific developing a product that the industry recognizes as significant in improving irrigation efficiency and convenience for growers,” said Reece Andrews, FieldNET Business Manager.
MULTI-CONTROL is an easy-to-use wireless irrigation controller that acts as the point of connection in the field, making the remote control over irrigation pumps, valves, filters and injectors possible. It is designed to work with FieldNET® by Lindsay’s wireless irrigation management system – one of the most intuitive low-volume irrigation control systems on the market today.
FieldNET with MULTI-CONTROL provides many benefits for growers, including labor and time savings, efficient use of resources, management of risk with insights into system performance and environmental conditions, user-friendly controls and interface, and near total automation of their low-volume irrigation systems.
