Technology that Helps You Get the Most from Your Field

Valley® DropSpan™ for irrigation systems can increase your irrigated acres without purchasing more land. Use this technology to drop the outer spans of your center pivot or linear, making it possible for the rest of your machine to irrigate acres behind barriers at the edges of the field. Adding DropSpan irrigation parts to your equipment allows you to drop as many spans as necessary, then reattach them as the machine returns.
