Valley® Introduces Pump Command™ – An Intelligent, Automated Control Solution for Irrigation

Oct 22, 2020

Valley® Irrigation, The Leader in Precision Irrigation®, has released Pump Command™, a new solution for growers to automate pumping and wirelessly control irrigation pumps. 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.

“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.
