Valley Irrigation has acquired PrecisionKing, a Mississippi-based agricultural technology company with products focused on humidity monitoring, pump control, and remote sensing, particularly for flood irrigation.
âWe are excited about this acquisition for many reasons,â said Darren Siekman, vice president of water distribution and business development for Valley. âThis strengthens our footprint in the Mississippi Delta region and brings additional and talented team members on board. It opens additional doors to other methods of irrigation, such as flooding. And, it further expands our best network of connected devices in the industry. “
Founded in 2014, PrecisionKing’s product line includes DecisionKing (humidity monitoring), PumpKing (remote pump control), RiceKing (water level monitoring), PivotKing (remote pivot control) and ClimateKing ( weather monitoring).
âWe are very excited about this opportunity,â says Daniel Cole, Partner of PrecisionKing. âValley is the industry leader in sales, service and technology, and we would not have made a decision that we believe would benefit our customers in the long term. Aligning with the global strength of the Valley brand will allow us to better serve producers in the Delta region and beyond, while retaining the local touch to which they are accustomed.
âIt’s increasingly clear that the future of agriculture is technology. Producers demand smart solutions that help them produce more with less and improve their quality of life, âsaid Andy Carritt, vice president of Valley, Global Product & AgSense GM. âValley recently passed 100,000 internet-connected producer devices, which is the industry leader, which means more and more producers are trusting the technology to work. ”
