VALLEY, Neb. (July 11, 2013) — Valley® Irrigation, the manufacturer of the Valley brand of irrigation equipment, will host three Field Days this summer to offer educational information about center pivot irrigation equipment, variable rate technology, water application technology, and crop management.
The first Field Day will be July 26 at Taylor Farms near Ames, Nebraska, USA, and will focus on soybean and corn management. The second, focusing on waste water management, will be Aug. 26 at Fair Oaks Farms near Fair Oaks, Indiana, USA; and the final day, focusing on potato and vegetable management, will be Sept. 9 at CSS Farms near Minden, Nebraska, USA. Each event will run from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will include lunch and demonstrations.
Every year, Valmont hosts hundreds of international visitors interested in touring farms, Valley dealerships, and the Valmont Irrigation factory. This year’s Field Day events will turn these visits into world-class educational events.
“These events will allow us to share insight and technology with local growers and groups of international growers in a collaborative environment,” said Matt Ondrejko, Vice President of Global Marketing at Valmont Irrigation. “As the world continues to get smaller, we can bring the similarities between international and domestic growers into focus. These sessions offer an opportunity to share ideas, build bonds, and create solutions that transcend international borders.”
Industry leading representatives from Valmont Irrigation, local universities, and
Servi-TechSM will present the latest in irrigation equipment, soil and crop management, and variable rate technology. Authorized providers Nelson® Irrigation and Senninger® Irrigation will present on the latest technologies in water application.
Anyone interested in irrigation is invited to attend. Space is limited; register by July 19 to reserve your spot for the July 26 Field Day, and one week in advance of the Aug. 26 and Sept. 9 events. For more information or to register, visit ValleyIrrigation.com/FD2013.
