Enhanced control of irrigation equipment is expected as a result of Rain Bird's recent acquisition of ClimateMinder.  

Improved irrigation monitoring is anticipated for farmers using Rain Bird agricultural irrigation products after the company’s acquisition of ClimateMinder.

That’s because the ClimateMinder system enables operators to automate data collection from irrigation sensors and wirelessly control irrigation equipment using battery- and solar-powered stations connected to the Internet. Tasks that can be performed with cellphones or other wireless devices include viewing sensor information, defining irrigation schedules and setting text alerts based on real-time readings.

"We’re very focused on supporting our customers with products and resources that will help them increase profits and improve sustainability," said Mark Ensworth, director of Rain Bird’s Agriculture Division. "The ClimateMinder organization embodies that same spirit, making it and its products an excellent fit with Rain Bird."
