You may know that FieldNET gives you the ability to manage your entire irrigation operation from virtually anywhere – with a smartphone, tablet or computer.
But there are a few things you may not know about our industry-leading technology, including:
- FieldNET is compatible with any brand of electric pivot – even older machines.
- Alerts, sent via text message, push notification or email, keep you informed about possible performance issues, so you can spend less time in the field.
