Alliance provides growers with more comprehensive set of solutions
Deshler, NE, Novato, CA, May 19, 2014 – Reinke Manufacturing, a leading manufacturer of mechanized irrigation systems, and Ranch Systems, a leading provider of field monitoring and control solutions for growers, have signed an agreement designating each other as Preferred Partners in the Australian and New Zealand markets. The companies’ complementary product lines combine to provide a more complete solution to a wide range of broad acre and row crop growers. The two companies will be cooperating on projects and referring business to each other.
Reinke provides a wide range of industry leading irrigation equipment ranging from center pivot to lateral move to specialty systems. RanchMaster wireless telemetry solutions for weather and climate monitoring, soil moisture tracking, pump control and remote cameras augment the capabilities currently provided by the Reinke Ontrac remote management products for the broad line of Reinke irrigation equipment. For example, a grower will have the ability to monitor and control the river bore pump that supplies water to their center pivot or they can use real-time soil moisture data from multiple locations to determine a variable rate irrigation schedule.
“We selected Ranch Systems as our Preferred Partner because we wanted to be able to offer mature, best-in-class technology from a company committed to taking care of their customers. We’re pleased to offer growers in Australia and New Zealand the solutions preferred by growers in bellwether California,” states Jim Snyder, Director of International Business Development at Reinke.
