The Irrigation Association is pleased to announce the winners of the 2018 New Product Contest at the Irrigation Show and Education Conference in Long Beach, California, US, on 3-7 Dec 2018.

A total of 58 new products and technologies were entered in five categories. Products were evaluated based on innovation, design quality, increased water/resource-use efficiency, ease of use and product life expectancy. Contest judges were experienced professionals with technical knowledge and industry expertise. The winners were announced Thursday 6 Dec, during the IA general session.

The winner of the agriculture irrigation category is the S7 Spinner by Nelson Irrigation.

The S7 Spinner is the first spinning microsprinkler to use flow-control nozzles. These nozzles deliver the same flow rate over a range of pressure by reducing the orifice size as pressure increases, while also including quick-clean technology and full modularity.”

This marks Nelson Irrigation’s 4th new product award from the Irrigation Association.
