Irrigate-IQ Variable Rate Irrigation

Every field is variable. They each vary in topography, soils, rainfall, and many other factors. And because of this variability, not every area needs the same amount of water. Too much or too little water can affect the quality and quality of your yield. Because every drop matters, every decision you make about irrigation is critical.

With Irrigate-IQ™ variable rate irrigation, you can precisely apply the right amount of water, fertigation, or effluent in the right place—while minimizing runoff. Use Irrigate-IQ variable rate irrigation to control pivot irrigators, plan irrigation plans, perform targeted application, and receive reports. By enhancing your irrigation operation, you can ensure you’re doing what’s best for your crop and your farm.

Irrigate-IQ variable rate irrigation is now available with Variable Rate Irrigation (VRI) products through the global Valley Irrigation dealer network. Now, more farmers worldwide can enhance their pivot’s capabilities by adopting a high-accuracy irrigation solution.

Use the GreenSeeker handheld to instantly take a reading of your crop’s health. Readings can be used to make non-subjective decisions regarding the amount of fertilizer to be applied to your crop, resulting in a more efficient use of fertilizer—a benefit to your bottom line and the environment.

How it Works

  • The sensor emits brief bursts of red and infrared light and then measures the amount of each type of light that is reflected back from the plant
  • The sensor continues to sample the scanned area as long as the trigger remains engaged
  • The sensor displays the measured value in terms of an NDVI reading (ranging from 0.00 to 0.99) on its LCD display screen
  • The strength of the detected light is a direct indicator of the health of the crop; the higher the reading, the healthier the plant
  • Use the Trimble Ag Software scout app on a smartphone or tablet to calculate fertilizer application rates from crop readings taken with the GreenSeeker handheld.


Benefits

  • High-quality optical sensor to instantly measure plant vigor
  • Easy-to-read display, even in sunlight
  • Simple pull-type trigger and comfortable hand grip
  • Micro USB charging port
