Lindsay’s FieldNET® Pivot Watch™ Earns AE50 Award

The National Award Recognizes the Year’s Most Innovative Designs

(OMAHA, Neb.)– November 2019 – Lindsay Corporation (NYSE: LNN), a leading global manufacturer and distributor of irrigation and infrastructure equipment and technology, announced that FieldNET Pivot Watch, its new remote monitoring solution, has been selected as an AE50 award winner for 2020. Presented by the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, the award recognizes this year’s most innovative designs in engineering products or systems for the food and agriculture industries.

“We are proud to once again be honored with an AE50 award and recognized as a leader in the irrigation technology market,” said Reece Andrews, product manager at Lindsay Corporation. “Lindsay is committed to delivering solutions that help growers save time, increase efficiency and boost yields – and with FieldNET Pivot Watch, we’re making remote irrigation monitoring more accessible than ever.” 

An ultra-low cost solution, FieldNET Pivot Watch is a solar-powered remote telemetry device that mounts onto any center pivot irrigation system, regardless of age or brand – including electric and hydraulic systems. It attaches directly to the span pipe, without the need to connect to the electrical circuitry of the pivot, which means growers can install it themselves.

“FieldNET Pivot Watch essentially brings remote irrigation management to anyone who wants it,” Andrews said. “With integrated cellular connectivity, GPS positioning and other embedded sensors, this simple, yet powerful, solution lets growers 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 automated irrigation scheduling tool, helping them make faster, better-informed decisions about when, where and how much to irrigate. This helps growers increase efficiency and profit while exercising more sustainable farming practices.

The AE50 awards will be presented at the ASABE Agricultural Equipment Technology Conference held in Louisville, Kentucky, on February 11, 2020.
