Valley Irrigation growing a bumper crop of delicious Wisconsin Super Sweet Corn summer of 2016. It is easy to see the difference where the irrigator reaches and on the edge of the field where it does not.

North Central has extensive experience towing used spans. We have 2 boom trucks and span carts to make your moving project go fast. The trucks are set-up with special towing stubs that secure the span and prevent bent pipes. Anyone can tow spans, but no one can tow them as fast or as safely as we can. We also have the ability to tow corner arms.

We take the time to engineer your machine to fit your field properly. This involves: talking and planning with you, measuring your field, computer span layout, 3-D terrain analysis, and finally a quote. Anyone can put up a machine and squirt water, but when it comes to watering correctly to increase your bottom line, you can’t skip steps and hope things work out during harvest.
We have the ability to properly irrigate just about any shape or slope of field. Below are some examples of what is possible.

NCI has experience with just about every brand of irrigation VFD available. The sky is the limit with options and controls. Converting single phase to three phase is our most common installation, but even three phase panels are gaining popularity. Anyone interested in saving money on their electric bill or wanting to change pump speed based on demand (If you have a corner arm on your system for example) would benefit from installing a VFD.

There are two ways to create a VRI Prescription:
No more driving to the field or fields to manually switch over. Save time. Besides basic ON-OFF operation, auto valves can also control pressure to a set point without the use of electronics.
We stock and install 2 brands: Nelson and X-Cad. Both brands come in 6″ and 8″ sizes, with the 6″ Nelson being the most popular. The 6″ Nelson valve can flow 1000GPM with 1 PSI of pressure loss through the valve. This means we can save you money by installing a 6″ valve into your 8″ pipeline.
One Frequency per farm
Fields analyzed for correct elevation path
A base computer set-up to include your pivots, GPS locations, and pivot information
Base computer installed at the center of operations
Data radios are added to the pivots that need to be controlled remotely (Easily added to rented pivots as well)

You are then able to FULLY control and receive updates from your pivots

Think of AgSense as a remote farm management solution. You can monitor and manage farm components through any Internet-connected smartphone, tablet or desktop computer.
And everything is managed by the AgSense App, a global network built specifically for the ag industry. The AgSense App captures data, aggregates it and delivers it back to you, so you can put the information to work. This irrigation technology network provides unlimited, real-time remote management for just about everything related to your operation.
BaseStation3™ from Valley® Irrigation is the most innovative, state-of-the-art irrigation management solution on the market, pushing monitoring and control technology to the next level to improve your farm and your quality of life. Remotely manage all your irrigation equipment from a computer, laptop, tablet, or smartphone – using native iOS (iPhone, iPad) or Android apps – for more control and more freedom.
Choose an Internet-connected or stand-alone installation, and select data radio, cellular modems, Internet protocol or a combination of technologies – a choice no one else offers. With Valley BaseStation3, you no longer need to plan your life around your irrigation schedule. Now, you can schedule irrigation around your life.
Use is subject only to signal strength. If you have signal, you have the ability to control you pivot remotely. To ensure that this product is correct for your needs we will perform a site survey for cellular connectivity. A yearly subscription fee is charged for 365 days of control. Cellular control is a more economical option to data radios with all of the same benefits. We can control any brand of pivot in any location. Get a free quote today!
High speed communication, longer range (Up to 3 miles), modular field replaceable components, heavy duty enclosures. An excellent replacement for “other” brands of pump radios with slow communications, non replaceable components, and outdated technology. Works with electric and diesel irrigation motors. Will work with up to 48 radios on one network. Can be used to control other things besides irrigation, manure pumps, oil and gas pumps, electric grain augers, waste water valves, factory automation (line of sight), outdoor lighting, etc. Because it draws so little power to operate it can be set-up to run off a 12 Volt battery for extended periods of time, if 120 Volts are not available.
