December 21, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News(OMAHA, Neb.) - Dec. 21, 2007 – Lindsay Corporation’s FieldNET™ – the industry’s first full control Web-based irrigation management system – was named the winner of the 2007 Irrigation Association New Ag Product of the Year.
“We are thrilled that FieldNET has been chosen as the top ag irrigation product of 2007, but it’s been the positive grower feedback that’s been the most rewarding to us,” said Reece Andrews, product manager for Lindsay’s GrowSmart™ line. “Our growers tell us that FieldNET saves them valuable time and money, making their operation more profitable.”
FieldNET gives growers the power to monitor and control their pivots from any internet connection or cellular phone. With a user-friendly Web portal, FieldNET also provides growers with a quick view of every pivot, providing information on pivot location, pivot status and water usage. The portal is accessible from the Internet, giving growers the freedom to monitor their pivots from anywhere in the world.
The announcement was made at the 28th Annual International Irrigation Show in San Diego, Calif. The competition was sponsored by the Irrigation Association (www.irrigation.org), with members worldwide – working toward a shared vision - water conservation through efficient irrigation.
Earlier this year, FieldNET also received a 2007 AE50 Award from the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) for innovation in engineering products that save growers time and money.
