Innovation for the future of farming


​Lindsay had a lot to celebrate during 2019 including the 50th anniversary of the first Zimmatic center pivot, the 10th anniversary of the first Precision VRI system and some big improvements to their information channels for Australian and New Zealand customers.

These celebrations encouraged Lindsay to look back at the company's rich history of developing cutting edge innovations to help growers irrigate efficiently. But what does the future of innovation look like?

Lindsay's President of Irrigation, Randy Wood, says the innovative spirit that drove company founder, Paul Zimmerer, still drives Lindsay today.

"We're dedicated to innovating the tools and solutions needed to help feed the world and be good stewards of the environment," he said. "At Lindsay, we are further accelerating our leadership in the area of precision irrigation management – providing growers with solutions that will help them produce more with less. Efficient irrigation is key to helping growers meet the challenges of a growing global population and helping to conserve resources while boosting farm output."

Lindsay are continuously adding new features to further advance the value of their remote irrigation management solutions FieldNET® and FieldNET Advisor®. They also adding new crops and regions all the time – extending the technology's capabilities to more growers around the world. Look for new crops coming to FieldNET Advisor coming this summer (America), including carrots, onions and even a pasture option.

Lindsay's vision for the future also includes collaborations with other best-in-class organisations – like Farmers Edge – to help growers consolidate the management of irrigation systems and other equipment, agronomic data and farm operations.

"We are fully aware of the power that comes with the ability to leverage big data – and the need to work with other organisations to help our growers better utilise that data to achieve greater operational efficiencies," Wood said. "We also envision enlisting the support of retailers and food processors in the effort to make efficient irrigation a priority. For example, we see a time when they prioritise suppliers according to how efficiently they apply water to their crop – something that can be tracked with FieldNET Advisor."

Lindsay's commitment to future innovation prompted them to set an ambitious goal to help growers save more than 700 billion gallons of water and more than one billion kilowatt hours of energy by the year 2022

"We're confident that by aggressively enhancing our technologies and extending their capabilities to more growers, we can meet our goals," Wood said. "Protecting and sustaining the world for future generations begins with effective water management – and we've made that a priority."
