Nelson Irrigation Wins Irrigation Association New Product Award

Nelson Irrigation Corporation’s R33 Rotator Sprinkler received the New Product Award for Agriculture from the Irrigation Association (IA) at the show in San Antonio in early December. IA’s New Product Contest entries are judged based on product innovation, water conservation, design quality, ease of use, cost savings, time savings, and user risk.


The R33 Rotator uses Nelson’s proven Rotator Technology to provide longer throw distance, fight the wind, and deliver uniform coverage. With new advancements in speed control, its design allows the sprinkler to move from slow mode back to a fast mode throughout its rotation. By reducing the speed of rotation intermittently, the R33 produces a wind-fighting pattern with maximum throw distance. The fast mode also assists in filling out the water pattern for greater uniformity.

The R33 is suitable for permanent-set, portable-pipe and wheel-line applications for all types of crops, including forage crops, vegetables, grain and pastures, tree/vine, berry, and nursery crops.
