Reinke variable-rate irrigation systemCourtesy Reinke Manufacturing Co.Reinke Manufacturing Co. Inc., Deshler, Neb., has introduced VRI, a fully integrated variable-rate irrigation system.

It is designed to be used in conjunction with the company's RPM Touch Screen control panel and Navigator global positioning system, according to a news release.

The VRI control panel allows users to import water-application prescriptions.

Much like variable-rate applications of nutrients, variable-rate irrigation allows users to match the quanity of water applied to different soil types, terrain or crops under one irrigation system.

Reinke also offers CropMetrics' Sector VRI and Zone VRI.

Sector VRI can vary the irrigation system speed, whereas Zone VRI automatically turns on or off individual sprinklers or sprinkler groups.
