OMAHA, Neb., May 26, 2023 – Lindsay Corporation a leading global manufacturer and distributor of irrigation and infrastructure equipment and technology, and Pessl Instruments, a global manufacturer and leading provider of advanced agricultural technology solutions under the METOS® brand, announce a strategic, global partnership focused on combining Pessl’s field monitoring systems with Lindsay’s FieldNET® remote irrigation management platform.
Through this partnership, growers will be able to access certain Pessl field monitoring systems, such as weather stations and soil moisture probes, within the FieldNET platform, providing real-time insights into crop water needs and enhancing growers’ ability to remotely monitor, control, analyze and apply irrigation recommendations. The addition of Pessl’s field monitoring solutions will allow growers to monitor and adjust operations based on key atmospheric conditions, such as temperature, rainfall, evapotranspiration, and soil moisture. Furthermore, growers utilizing FieldNET Advisor® will be able to utilize Pessl’s field monitoring systems to enhance the predictive analytics provided by the solution.
“We understand the challenges that farmers face in managing the irrigation for their field, and at Pessl, we are deeply committed to providing them with the tools they need to make their operation efficient and sustainable,”
said Gottfried Pessl, CEO & Founder of Pessl Instruments.
“This partnership will leverage the combined expertise of Pessl and Lindsay; it will combine cutting-edge technologies and revolutionize how farmers manage their irrigation, logistics and plant protection. Pessl and Lindsay as partners will enable farmers not only to understand what their crops need, but also to help them make the right decisions at the right time, saving them time and resources,”
concluded Mr Pessl.
Through our partnerships with growers worldwide, we have learned that in-depth analytics are critical to informing key decisions before, during and after the growing season. Adding the additional capabilities in soil moisture and weather monitoring that Pessl has developed and field–tested will enable our growers to gain even greater confidence in the irrigation management decisions they make using FieldNET and in the recommendations provided by FieldNET Advisor, utilizing predictive analytics to determine where, when and how much to irrigate,”
