FieldNET® Pivot Watch™ Earns AE50 Award

We’re proud to announce we’ve earned another AE50 Award – this time for FieldNET Pivot Watch, our new, remote monitoring solution. The award, which is presented by the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, recognizes the year’s most innovative designs in engineering products or systems for the food and agriculture industries.

“It’s always a great honor to be recognized with an AE50 Award, because it reinforces our mission to be the innovation leader in the irrigation technology market,” said Reece Andrews, product manager at Lindsay Corporation. “With FieldNET Pivot Watch, we’re making remote irrigation management more accessible than ever - delivering on our commitment to help growers save time, increase efficiency and boost yields.”

An ultra-low cost solution, FieldNET Pivot Watch is a solar-powered remote telemetry device that mounts onto any center pivot – regardless of age or brand – including electric and hydraulic systems. It attaches directly to the span pipe and, because there’s no need to connect to the pivot’s electrical circuitry, growers can install it themselves.

“It’s the simple, yet powerful solution many growers need,” Andrews said. “Instead of driving to their fields multiple times a day, they can monitor their pivot’s functions via the FieldNET app – 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.”

With FieldNET Pivot Watch, growers and their agronomic advisors also will have access to FieldNET Advisor®, the industry’s first irrigation scheduling tool – which will help them make faster, better-informed decisions about when, where and how much to irrigate.
