FieldNET Pivot Control Awarded Gold Medal in AGROSALON Competition

Competition Precedes International Exhibition in Moscow, Russia 

(OMAHA, Neb.) – August 2016— Lindsay Corporation, maker of Zimmatic® irrigation systems, has announced that FieldNET Pivot Control has been awarded a gold medal in the 2016 AGROSALON Innovative Agriculture Machinery Contest.

This year’s competition, which included 74 entries from 43 leading farm machinery producers, resulted in the awarding of four gold and 15 silver medals. An international panel of agriculture experts evaluated the entries based on the value of innovation in practice, the benefits for the enterprise economy and the balance of labor resources, improving efficiency and environmental safety, improvement of soil fertility and the impact on the security and facilitation of labor.

Pivot Control is the industry’s first solution for upgrading almost any band of pivot to full remote irrigation control and monitoring capabilities. Because it eliminates the need to manage multiple irrigation system brands, it saves time and reduces chances of operator error.

“We are very pleased and honored to receive this award,” said Damien Cochelin, regional manager, Russia, Ukraine and CIS. “Pivot Control is a game changer for growers who want to reduce labor costs and increase overall irrigation efficiency in their operations.”

The awards will be presented during the 2016 AGROSALON International Exhibition that will be held October 4 - 7 in Moscow, Russia. The Exhibition displays the latest technical solutions in the agro-industrial complex and is the only exhibition in Russia that includes all leading global manufacturers.
