Valley Irrigation provides advanced GPS guidance solution for corners


Valley Irrigation announces improvements to Valley GPS Guidance, providing growers with the latest advancements in competitive GPS corner technology.

Valley GPS Guidance now uses advanced power line carrier (PLC) technology to communicate RTK GPS correction signals. This technology improves the reliability of communication with the corner arm, eliminating the need for radios. Additionally, the built-in terrain compensation provides more accurate steering on steep terrain.

According to the company, Valley GPS Guidance offers simplicity, accuracy, consistency, reliability, flexibility and compatibility. “Valley GPS Guidance is compatible with all Valley control panels and corner models. It also easily retrofits onto an existing Valley corner with John Deere/NavCom or other solutions with multi- or single-frequency GPS guidance,” the company stated in a news release.

“These latest enhancements to Valley GPS Guidance are now available to growers on a global basis,” said Troy Long, Valley Irrigation senior director of product management. “In the fourth quarter of 2019, we plan to further enhance Valley GPS Guidance by releasing the second generation of the technology, which will provide a next-level, custom-designed digital antenna.”
