Smart Irrigation Month Helps Growers Maximize Water-Use Efficiency

Valley® is joining the celebration of Smart Irrigation Month by helping growers maximize water-use efficiency. 

Smart Irrigation Month is a public awareness campaign to promote efficient water use and highlights effective practices and innovative technologies to:

  • Increase crop yield per acre. 
  • Apply water and nutrient inputs more precisely for improved results with no waste. 
  • Minimize runoff and top soil erosion. 
  • Help protect and preserve water supplies for today and the future. 
Center pivot and linear irrigation machines deliver exactly the right amount of water at the right time. Efficient irrigation: 
  • Precisely applies water and nutrients to minimize evaporation, runoff and waste. 
  • Generates more crop per drop. 
  • Adjust watering automatically to account for rain and other conditions. 
  • Minimizes overwatering 
Join the cause and help protect our global water resources. Every drop counts! Learn more at

Smart Irrigation Month is an initiative of the Irrigation Association, a non-profit industry organization dedicated to promoting efficient irrigation.
