2019 Vanguard Award Recipient Announced

Ag Irrigation Project Receives Honor

2019 Vanguard Award Recipient Announced

The IA's Vanguard Award honors projects in the irrigation industry executed by a team of individuals, companies, organizations or other group entities.

The Irrigation Association has announced its 2019 Vanguard Award winner. The award recognizes innovation that leads the way in new developments or ideas. 

Lindsay Corporation's Riverview LLP project has been named the recipient of this year's Vanguard Award.

Located in Arizona, Riverview LLP operates 196 center pivots over more than 24,000 acres of irrigated land.

Riverview LLP identified a primary challenge to ensure the organization's long-term sustainability through water conversation and teamed with Lindsay to meet the challenge.

Partners in the project included Riverview LLP, a Minnesota-based beef, dairy and crop production partnership; Lindsay dealer Whitewater Irrigation; Lindsay's water engineering division IRZ Engineering Consultants; and Watertronics. The collaboration produced the construction of a radio network, implementation of remote telemetry, customization of a pumping system with variable frequency drives and dynamic demand control to reduce pumping costs - a complete solution for the operation.

"On behalf of everyone here at Lindsay, I'd like to thank the Irrigation Association for this recognition. We are excited that this project was named the winner of the IA's Vanguard Award," said Randy Wood, president - irrigation at Lindsay. "The success of this project could not have been possible without the long-standing commitment to water efficiency made by Riverview and Coronado Farms. We congratulate everyone involved in this project; it truly was a team effort."

The Vanguard Award and the other IA award winners were officially announced during Smart Irrigation Month on Technology Tuesday, July 9. The IA awards will be presented to all recipients, including Lindsay and the team behind the Riverview LLP project, during the general session of the Irrigation Show and Education Week in Las Vegas.
