True Precision Irrigation Technology

Precision farming has enabled growers to implement greater control over their operation. So, it makes sense that precise irrigation can quickly yield results.

Variable Rate Irrigation (VRI) from Valley® Irrigation uses prescriptions developed specifically for each field, allowing growers to apply precise water application throughout the field. With this technology, growers can more efficiently use their resources.

Valley VRI is completely compatible with third party agronomists and precision ag companies, so others can write VRI prescriptions for Valley equipment. Or with just a few pieces of information, the Valley VRI team can write a QuickStart Prescription for you.

Watch this video to find out more about VRI and its benefits.


  1. I want to know how do you regulate the flow? Do you use selenoid?

    1. Isaac, I apologize for the delay. I now have the information you are looking for. According to our VRI Product Manager: For zones, we use valves and solenoids controlled by a prescription on the Pro2 panel that is created by prescription software. This is how we regulate the volume of water being applied. Some machines are also equipped with a variable frequency drive (VFD), which helps regulate the overall pressure of the machine.
