With over 228,000 Valley pivots operating worldwide across more than 100 crop varieties, covering more than 30 million acres in over 120 countries, Valley Irrigation is committed to educating on the importance of irrigation management for greater efficiencies. Their presence at the Celebration of Modern Agriculture highlighted the vital role of advanced irrigation technologies in meeting the future challenges of food production.

“As we showcase our cutting-edge agricultural technology, we’re not only displaying innovation; we’re representing the resilience and ingenuity of American farmers,” stated Darren Siekman, Vice President of Policy & Industry Strategy at Valley Irrigation. “Our presence here underscores the critical need for policymakers to witness firsthand the advancements driving our industry forward. By bridging the gap between technology and policy, we’re shaping the future of farming and ensuring its vitality and prosperity for generations to come.”

U.S. Sen. Pete Ricketts of Nebraska echoed this sentiment, stating, “Agriculture is the heart and soul of what we do in Nebraska. To keep it that way, we need American innovation that continues to push the agriculture industry forward. Nebraska employers featured in the Celebration of Agriculture on the National Mall this week play a critical role in that effort. I’ll always fight to support policies that ensure our farmers have the tools and support they need to compete and prosper.”

Valley Irrigation’s participation in the event emphasized their commitment to supporting growers worldwide and advocating for policies that promote sustainable agriculture practices. With a projected 70% increase in food production needed to meet population growth within 30 years, Valley Irrigation is dedicated to collaborating with growers to save time, labor and fuel through advanced irrigation management and technologies.
