Komet Irrigation Celebrates 70 Years of Irrigation

Offers “Komet Academy” as Irrigation Education Opportunity

Komet Irrigation is celebrating its 70th anniversary, marking another milestone in the company’s mission to deliver innovative irrigation solutions since it began developing agricultural sprinklers in 1952.

Komet Irrigation specializes in the design and manufacturing of pivot sprinklers and big volume guns. The line-up of highly efficient water application products is the culmination of experience, years of meticulous research and development, and a focus on effectively meeting the challenges growers face in real-life field environments.

“We are proud to have served agriculture for 70 years, including 30 years in the North American market. As a family-owned business based in Austria, we remain firmly committed to the values and innovative spirit on which our father founded this company,”

says Hugo Drechsel, Komet Irrigation CSO and head of marketing.

Komet Academy: Education for Field-Specific Irrigation Conversations

“In addition to providing the highest quality irrigation equipment, we want to ensure our customers have the knowledge and resources to make informed decisions based on their unique irrigation needs and the specific field conditions they encounter. One of the ways we can improve irrigation conversations between growers and dealers is by offering free online seminars during our Komet Academy Week,”

Drechsel explains.

The Komet Academy is a series of comprehensive, informal meetings covering topics in mechanized irrigation. The next Komet Academy Week is scheduled for February 21st – 25th, 2022, and will feature six seminars with topics ranging from designing the perfect sprinkler package to in-field troubleshooting.

“The Komet Academy presents a great opportunity for growers, dealers, and others interested in expanding their knowledge to submit questions and gain access to the experts,”

states Josh Mosier, general manager and technical sales director of Komet Irrigation Corp., USA & Canada.

“We often hear from participants that even after many years of irrigation experience, they still learn something new from the Academy. The one-hour seminars are entirely product-neutral and free to attend, regardless if you are a Komet customer or not,”

he shares.
