Valley Irrigation Launches Redesigned Website
Valley Irrigation, makers of precision irrigation, has redesigned its website, at www.ValleyIrrigation.com, to better serve its customers.
The new website makes it easy to research a product or contact a Valley dealer. Growers can find product brochures, videos, owners’ manuals and all the resources needed to make informed irrigation decisions.
The site also includes a section on Valley control technology options for precision irrigation machines, which allow growers to control their pivots remotely, saving time and money by eliminating the need to physically visit fields.
Other features on the new site include a return-on-investment calculator for determining the benefits of a corner purchase, podcasts, a photo gallery, company information and irrigation management solutions.
