Valley Irrigation offers demo of their remote monitoring and control technology.

Growers interested in adding irrigation remote monitoring and control to their operations can try Valley BaseStation3 for free.

BaseStation3 allows growers to manage and control their irrigation equipment from any computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone; with the option of no monthly or annual fees.

A new demo gives growers a hands-on, no-commitment test drive of BaseStation3. The demo puts growers in control of a simulated farm so they can explore BaseStation3’s capabilities.

Remote technology allows growers to check irrigation from desktop or smartphone.

“We work hard to make sure our technology keeps making farmers’ lives better and easier,” said John Campbell, Valley Irrigation manager of technology advancement and adoption. “BaseStation3 provides more control, more freedom and better quality of life.”

A free Demo of the BaseStation3 mobile app is also available. Growers can download the app from the Apple or Android app store then click on the demo button to discover the control the app offers, and experience the layout and intuitive design.

David Segars, a grower from Hartsville, N.C., is a big fan of BaseStation3 and the mobile app.

“The mobile app is extremely user-friendly,” Segar said. “I’m using it on my iPhone and iPad now and hardly ever use my desktop anymore. I don’t know how I ever irrigated without it. I can even go on vacation now.”
