Control the speed of your irrigation application.

Valley Variable Rate Irrigation (VRI) Speed Control is an option for growers who want basic VRI control and the benefits of applying water more efficiently. With speed control, your customized VRI prescription speeds up or slows down the center pivot to achieve the desired application depth across each sector.

Like some computerized control panels you're using, or have used in the past, your VRI Speed Control Prescription is programmed to irrigate your fields in sectors, which look like slices of pie. As your pivot reaches each sector, it speeds up or slows down to ensure the right amount of water is applied.

VRI Speed Control Features

  • Customized management zones: Your field is divided into 180 sectors with optimized water application in every sector.
  • Precise application depth: Based on an uploaded VRI Prescription, your pivot speeds up/slows down to achieve the desired application depth along each sector.
  • Standard with any Valley ICON® smart panel.
  • Options: Available to install on any Pro2 or Select2 control panel, with required software upgrade.
  • Flexible: Utilizes your new or existing sprinkler package.
  • Remote access: Depending on the communications device, VRI Speed Control can be used with the Valley Classic or ClassicPlus control panels, as well as with non-Valley machines.

How VRI Speed Control Works

  1. Upload your VRI Speed Control prescription to your control panel or compatible remote communication device. Up to five prescriptions can be uploaded and stored at a time.
  2. In your control panel or compatible remote communication device, turn on VRI Speed Control and select a prescription.
  3. When your center pivot is running with water, the application depth is adjusted by increasing or decreasing speed of the center pivot, which has been programmed in your prescription.
