Variable Rate Irrigation (VRI) Prescriptions | Valley Irrigation

VRI Prescriptions

Customize Your Irrigation Application to Maximize Results

 

Variable Rate Irrigation Prescriptions - Personalized Water Management

You've made the move to Valley® VRI, now what? The first thing you want to do is gather all the information and data on your field that you can possibly think of, then ask your agronomist to write a VRI Prescription that is specific to your operation. If you don't have an agronomist, ask your Valley dealer to help you find one. A prescription is the cornerstone of variable rate irrigation because it's the precision agriculture resource that tells your center pivot when and where to adjust the application depth in specific sectors or management zones in your field.

Your Prescription makes it easy to adapt to changes in soil moisture conditions and modify how you apply water to your management zones throughout the growing season. Seeing a change in conditions in part of your field? Just change your VRI Prescription to vary water application in that specific zone! Customize your irrigation application to maximize not only results, but also profitability.

Custom-tailored prescriptions provide precision irrigation to enhance your agriculture productivity.
