Irrigation Innovations on Display for the First Time at Farm Progress Show

Lindsay is showcasing its newest industry-leading, customer-first irrigation innovations this week at the Farm Progress Show in Decatur, Illinois.

The Smart Pivot

Since its November 2020 virtual announcement, show-goers will, for the first time, have the chance to see first-hand the smart pivot, which allows you to move beyond water application into machine health and advanced agronomics with 24/7 access to real-time, 360-degree crop health and operational data throughout the growing season.

Through Zimmatic machine health and FieldNET advanced agronomics, the smart pivot is designed to support healthier crops and more sustainable farming practices, all while reducing risk and operational downtime.

New FieldNET UI

Lindsay’s remote irrigation management solution, FieldNET, which provides recommendations on when, where, and how much growers should irrigate, was recently released in a new, highly intuitive beta UI (user interface), which current, North American FieldNET customers can access and provide input on, prior to the full release for the next growing season.

“The new FieldNET UI is where the smart pivot is coming to life through a map-centric view of a grower’s operation. It’s a more intuitive and easier way for growers to see and interact with their equipment and obtain critical operational information,” said Michelle Marcuzzo, software product manager at Lindsay. “Already a leader in responsive, mobile-first design, the new FieldNET UI makes it even easier for growers to do more from their smart phones; customers can access layers of information from one central location.”

Marcuzzo says current FieldNET customers may request to participate in the beta UI by visiting Lindsay.com/betasignup. As part of its customer-first approach to innovation, Lindsay will incorporate beta user feedback to further build and enhance the UI.

Check out the smart pivot and new FieldNET UI at booth 1043 at the Farm Progress Show and again at Husker Harvest Days, September 14-16, in Grand Island, Nebraska.
