VALLEY, Neb. — Growers interested in adding irrigation remote monitoring and control to their operations can try Valley BaseStation3 for free. The platform 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.

The 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 dig into BaseStation3’s capabilities. They can create a step program, discover Destination ETA and Valley-exclusive Cruise Control and explore the Auxiliary Link control and monitoring features.
