Industry-Leading Innovation on Display at Fall Farm Shows

What can you expect to see at this year’s fall farm shows?

At the Lindsay booth, you can expect to find the smartest solutions in irrigation management as well as our team of experts who are ready to help you get more crop per drop.

New or recently enhanced products on display include:

  • FieldNET Advisor® - new features in this one-of-a-kind tool give growers an increased level of customization and mobility, while helping them be even more precise when deciding when, where and how much to irrigate. This automated irrigation recommendation and scheduling tool now is available to growers in 17 countries, and it can be used with more than 20 different crops.
  • Zimmatic Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) – designed specifically for production agricultural use, a major upgrade delivers the easiest to use, most intuitive user experience in the industry. Designed with pivot irrigation in mind, it has new software, a new controller and a larger 5.7” color touchscreen that allows for quick set-up and easy-to-understand monitoring. Growers can remotely manage the Zimmatic VFD from anywhere, via built-in integration with Lindsay’s FieldNET remote monitoring and control tool. 
  • NFTrax® 2.0 – the recently updated, patented airless wheel design that will never go flat and keeps wheel ruts to a minimum. A heavy-duty vulcanized rubber belt with a steel cable core is tensioned over 10 newly designed, winged drive points to apply even pressure across the entire belt surface. This forms a larger surface area to evenly distribute the machine’s weight, resulting in improved performance over varying terrain and field features.
  • NFTrax Z-Tread – a new, aggressive tread design for where more traction is required – slopes, low spots, areas with slick, clay-based soil, etc. 

We hope to see you at one of the upcoming fall shows, including:  

3i Show – October 11 – 13 in Dodge City, Kansas

Sunbelt Ag Expo – October 16 – 18 in Moultrie, Georgia

Amarillo Farm Show – November 27 – 29 in Amarillo, Texas
