Valley, Nebraska-based Valley Irrigation has acquired the Benton, Mississippi-based ag-tech company, PrecisionKing, which focuses on moisture monitoring, pump control and remote sensing.
“We are excited about this acquisition for many reasons,” says Darren Siekman, Valley vice president of water delivery and business development said in a news release. “It strengthens our footprint in the Mississippi Delta region and brings additional, talented team members on board. It opens additional doors into other methods of irrigation, such as flood. And, it further expands our industry-best network of connected devices.”
Founded in 2014, PrecisionKing offers products including DecisionKing (moisture monitoring), PumpKing (remote pump control), RiceKing (water level monitoring), PivotKing (remote pivot control) and ClimateKing (weather monitoring).
“We are very excited for this opportunity,” says Daniel Cole, partner in PrecisionKing. “Valley is the industry leader in sales, service and technology, and we would not have made any move that we didn’t think would benefit our customers in the long term. Aligning with the global strength of the Valley brand will enable us to better serve growers in the Delta region and beyond, while keeping the local touch that they’re used to.””
