AgSense WagNet (Wireless Agriculture Network) allows you to proactively manage your operation from any location.  This cloud-based dashboard utilizes a Remote Telemetry Unit to provide real-time information so you can control and monitor groups or specific pivots and pumps directly from the dashboard.

McCrometer Flow Meters for precise and accurate flow monitoring ensure that your crops will not encounter the negative impact of system breaks or malfunctions that might occur.

Moisture Sensors are key to water conservation and keeping costs low.  Moisture sensors provide vital information about when to irrigate and for how long.

Murphy Engine Timers to start or stop engines are needed for accurate and easily managed water flow to crops.

Poly Piranha is the most innovative poly pipe hole punch tool on the market with easily distinguished color-coded punches in varying sizes and interchangeable striking heads.

P&R Surge Valves are cast aluminum T-shaped diverters that take water in on one port and deliver it left or right to the other ports.  They are controlled by butterfly valves that are activated by motors in the controllers.
