(PRWEB) November 8, 2004
St Charles, MO Â Fertigation Technologies, Inc., manufacturer of the FertiGatorÂ advanced lawn and garden treatment products and solutions, today announced the introduction of iConÂ, a universal controller to manage all the functionality of irrigation systems and the only patented, controllable fertigation device, the FertiGatorÂ.
Commenting on the release of this new product, Dave Cross, President of Fertigation Technologies stated, ÂThe trend towards fertigation for home lawn care is rapidly increasing as its benefits are being known and understood, yet homeowners demand an easy way to control all the components involved with this method of lawn care. Our new integrated controller, iConÂ, provides in one device, an automatic means of total control over any existing irrigation system, control over the FertiGatorÂ distribution system, and in the future will provide control over other outdoor environment systems such as outdoor lighting and misting systems, and for a price that is attractive over existing controllers with lesser functionality.Â
Fertigation TechnologiesÂ CEO, Craig Lashmet states, ÂThe release of iConÂ further underscores our continued leadership in advancing the lawn care industryÂs growth and quality, and addressing important issues such as water conservation, environmental purity and safety solutions. Our FertiGatorÂ is the only patented, controllable, fertilizing and supplement distribution device, allowing a homeowner or lawn care company to control, by zone or irrigation head, how much lawn treatment to distribute. Now, our new iConÂ, integrates into one Âclock or timerÂ the total control over the irrigation system and the fertigation pump, and in the near future can control outdoor lighting and misting systems so that a homeowner, home builder, or lawn care company has total control over the outdoor landscape environment in one, easy to use controller. We believe there is simply no better way to fertilize and treat residential lawn and gardens.Â
Fertigation Technologies unveils iConÂ, its universal automatic lawn care controller at the upcoming international Irrigation Association Show in Tampa, FL from November 14-16, 2004. The product is commercially available worldwide on December 1, 2004.
Integrated Control - iConÂ integrates into one device the management of the home outdoor landscape environment. iConÂ manages the operation of any irrigation system of any manufacturer, combined with the integrated management of the only patented, zone controllable fertigation delivery device, the FertiGatorÂ.
Upgradeable Design Â iConÂ features an innovative design allowing unique customization for each specific landscape requirement. The controller is currently available for 6, 9, or 12 irrigation stations, and is soon available for irrigation systems with up to 24 stations. The use of iConÂ negates the need for the EZ-1 controller currently used in FertiGatorÂ Pro installations.
Water Conservation and Management - iConÂ currently has several water conservation features including a monthly percentage adjustment giving you the control to set, in advance, an entire yearÂs irrigation schedule based on historical seasonal requirements for the area. iConÂ has the ability to accept input from soil moisture sensors to automatically activate or shutdown the irrigation system based on real-time moisture needs. iConÂ, in concert with the use of FertiGatorÂ, and its proprietary formulas, contribute to water savings of up to 50% reduction over traditional irrigation systems and control mechanisms.
