The acquisition furthers the two companies' shared goals of delivering innovative real-world solutions to help growers increase water and energy efficiency and exercise more sustainable farming practices while operating and maintaining irrigation systems.
Founded in 2006, Net Irrigate builds customized remote monitoring devices and reporting software for large farms and government agencies associated with ground and surface water conservation.
In 2010, the company released its flagship WireRat brand, which led to the reduction of copper theft on center pivots in several areas of the United States and Canada. Net Irrigate has deployed more than 10,000 monitoring devices, including its CircleScout remote irrigation management hardware and software solution, across 2,000+ agricultural enterprises. ■
