Center pivot manufacturer Valley Irrigation is profiled in a recent segment of Fox Business Channel’s TV show "The Green Room". In the clip, host John Holden visits California and explores why water is so important to agriculture and how the company is working to build efficient technology.
"Center pivot irrigation is one of the most efficient forms of irrigation in the world," Len Adams, global president, Valley Irrigation, tells Holden. Yet, as of today, "87% of the irrigated farmland in the world is still flood irrigated."
