“Net Irrigate was an early pioneer in the Industrial Internet of Things space, particularly related to remote monitoring of center pivot irrigation systems. As such, they have built a large customer base that will now have access to additional functionality and solutions with Lindsay’s industry-leading FieldNET irrigation technology offering.”

Established in 2006, Net Irrigate develops tailored remote monitoring devices and reporting software for large farms and government agencies that are engaged with ground and surface water conservation. In 2010, the AgTech company launched its flagship WireRat brand, which is said to have resulted in the reduction of copper theft on center pivots in various areas of the US and Canada.

Net Irrigate is claimed to have deployed over 10,000 monitoring devices, including its CircleScout remote irrigation management hardware and software solution, across more than 2,000 agricultural enterprises.
