Agri-Inject Unveils Automatic Injection Control
When it comes to irrigating more acres for a little more investment, center pivot corner systems have proven to be a valuable asset. Yet, it hasn't been the case when it comes to applying fertilizer. More often than not, fertilizer injection systems cannot respond proportionally to the changing flow conditions as the corner section extends and retracts.
With the introduction of Agri-Inject's reflex growers now have a solution. When coupled with an Agri-Inject injection pump, this intelligent injection control system provides automatic, responsive control of fertilizer or chemical flow into the system to match changing irrigation conditions.
"With reflex technology, the changing water flow rates are sensed automatically and adjustment is immediately made to the rate of the injection pump to ensure consistent fertilizer dosing," explains Erik Tribelhorn, CEO of Agri-Inject. "Better yet, it doesn't matter whether those variable flow rates are the result of a corner span extending, a change in pivot speed, changing flow rate from the pump, a variable-rate pivot or mixed-size zone drip irrigation. The reflex system allows the injection pump to be precisely proportional to the flow of the water."
Setting up the system to work with nearly any type of irrigation system is a quick and simple process. Users can configure the system for flow settings, sensor information, injection pump settings and more through the touchscreen panel.
"In less than five minutes, reflex is programmed and ready to work," notes Tribelhorn. "Fertigation is still one of the best management practices on an irrigated farm today. The reflex unit simply ensures proportional injection."
