- Ensure pressure and flow rate are within optimal, safe ranges
- Reduce the risk of damaging equipment due to pressure changes
- Utilize standard pump equipment that you already own
- Focus water resources on areas that need it
- Improve crop quality and yield
No matter how much water you apply, some areas of your field just don’t produce high yields. And when you don’t have a variable frequency drive pump, it’s next to impossible to avoid applying a constant rate across your entire field—resulting in wasted water and wasted costs.
Trimble® Irrigate-IQ™ optimal flow enables you to avoid watering areas that do not need it, and focus those resources on other areas of the field. With optimal flow, you can use the same standard equipment on your pump while keeping the pressure regulated across the entire pivot—so you don’t have to purchase costly drives or worry about damaging equipment.
Irrigate-IQ optimal flow ensures the pressure of your pivot stays within a defined range, even when operating in no spray areas. If the pivot exceeds a maximum range, the system will go into a safety mode to reduce the pressure, so you can be confident your pivot is not at risk of damage.
Industry-leading, 3-way vent to atmosphere valves ensure the system performs reliably all season. The rugged, fully-sealed housing prevents clogging and blockage, even when pumping unwanted debris. Plus, the valves default to the open position, so water will always flow, even during unexpected system events.
Individual Nozzle Control
Irrigate-IQ optimal flow gives you control over each individual nozzle based on the irrigation plan and location. Individual nozzle control provides the highest level of accuracy for your no spray areas.
Flexible and Scalable
The Irrigate-IQ solution is flexible and scalable to suit your irrigation needs. It can be installed on a many pivot makes and models that have basic or smart panels. You can start with a basic monitor and control system and upgrade to optimal flow at any time using the same base hardware. There is no loss of initial investment.
|Because we only get about seven inches of rain a year, everything is under irrigation.|
|If you watch, an electric pivot will stop and start hundreds of times as it goes around the field.|
|The cow man has really become my niche market, compared to electric pivots, the T-L machine is a lot better suited for exposure to livestock.|
|Without a doubt the Irrigate-IQ system did a better job irrigating than the system that had no variable rate irrigation—it was certainly a success.|
