CropX, Reinke Form Precision Irrigation Partnership
CropX and irrigation systems company Reinke Manufacturing have formed a partnership to integrate their technologies to advance precision irrigation technology, the companies announced Monday.
CropX President John Vikupitz said the companies plan to offer producers a technical platform for soil health and irrigation prescription, which will increase productivity for growers. Through the partnership, growers using both systems can access to CropX’s irrigation prescriptions and incorporate them into the Reinke irrigation control system.
Vikupitz commented: “Today’s producers face mounting profitability, resource availability and sustainability challenges throughout the world. Our mission is to provide affordable, scalable, best-in-class technical solutions to meet these challenges. We are looking forward to partnering with the Reinke team to offer producers a technical platform to enable them to realize the tremendous untapped profitability to be achieved through proper management of soil health and irrigation prescriptions.”
In January, CropX acquired CropMetrics, a provider of cloud-based, precision-irrigation tools.
