Valley Irrigation’s GPS Guidance tool for corners and linear irrigation equipment is now compatible with the John Deere StarFire and Trimble GPS products. According to the company, the compatibility with the GPS systems that growers already use on their tractors and combines significantly lowers the costs associated with implementing GPS Guidance.
Scott Mauseth, product manager, says compatibility with Trimble GPS base stations will make conversions from buried wire to Valley GPS Guidance easier, as the process doesn’t require the same labor and maintenance as buried wire.
"What we’re seeing lately is the desire to get every acre into irrigated production. In some fields, using the conventional buried wire is just not possible due to subsurface rock, drain tile, underground pipelines, etc.," Mauseth says.
