Pump Command a new control system introduced by Valley Irrigation

Omaha, Nebraska-based Valley Irrigation, has released Pump Command, a new solution for growers to automate pumping and wirelessly control irrigation pumps.

According to a news release, the innovation helps save time and resources with wireless remote monitoring, plus control of all pumps and the ability to link them to a fleet of pivots or linears. Learn more at valleyirrigation.com/pump-command.

“Valley Pump Command is like an easy button for your pumping,” says Andy Carritt, Vice President, Global Product for Valley Irrigation. “Just turn your pivots on, and your pump station takes care of itself. Pump Command is able to achieve that through our revolutionary intuitive pump control technology, an automatic VFD set point that automatically matches output to demand for multiple pumps and pivots. It saves growers water and energy, and conserves natural resources.”

 In addition to Intuitive Pump Control, Pump Command offers the following benefits:

Maximized efficiency – Save energy and water at all times by using only the pressure required

Time savings – Eliminate trips to the pumps

Cost savings – Avoid the expensive and difficult digging necessary to install wires

Reporting capabilities – Integration with Valley 365 and AgSense irrigation management solutions* for comprehensive recordkeeping

Flexibility – Valley offers several tiered solutions to meet growers’ specific needs

* Additional hardware and subscription fees may be required.

“Not every farm is the same,” Carritt continues. “Pump Command is ideal for large and small farms, with three different tiers – Basic, Enhanced and Pro – to meet the unique needs of different operations.”
