No longer will your center pivot be thought of solely as an irrigation machine. Utilizing your pivots as the digital data hub, Valley and Prospera are bringing unprecedented visibility to your fields so you can optimize your irrigation and progress toward autonomous crop management.
Sharing the intelligence between connected field devices, the pivot, and the integration of data science and machine learning allows you to detect and receive the critical information to deliver greater crop precision, resulting in greater returns while using fewer inputs and resources.
Valley Irrigation founded the center pivot irrigation industry in 1954, and is the worldwide leader in sales, service, quality and technology. With historical sales of more than 250,000 machines, Valley-built equipment annually irrigates approximately 25 million acres (10 million hectares) around the world. This global presence will become even more powerful with Prospera’s AI-based solutions, connecting growers everywhere with the data they need to become more efficient and productive.

Crops are constantly monitored with an array of sensors, from satellite imagery to drones and soil probes. Any existing data source is integrated into the data layering to optimize plant health.
The data collected is analyzed in the Prospera Cloud by powerful Artificial Intelligence (AI) engines, Computer Vision (CV) and Machine Learning (ML) algorithms.
Post analysis, recommendations are sent to the field prompting the grower to take action. The instructions can also be sent directly to the pivot for robotic operation with grower notification to commence operation for true autonomous crop management as technology progresses.
