Toro launches 2nd edition manual for drip irrigation owners
Toro now has the second edition of its Drip Irrigation Owner’s Manual available for purchase and/or free download from www.toro.com. This 129-page, four-color, fully illustrated, spiral-wound document is a comprehensive guide to the operation and maintenance of both new and existing micro-irrigation systems for row, field and permanent crops. The resource comes in both English and Spanish versions, with measurements in English and Metric Units. Chapter titles include:
Drip Irrigation System Overview
Starting Up Your System
Basic System Operation
Fertigation and Chemigation
Maximizing Your Investment
“The first edition of the Owner’s Manual was launched two years ago and has been very well received by the industry,” says Claude Corcos, senior marketing manager for Toro’s Micro-Irrigation Business. “Farmers, dealers, consultants, government officials and academia have all enjoyed using the document, whether they were new to drip or seasoned veterans. It has become a must-have for every irrigator’s resource library.”
In addition to the metric translation of both documents, the Spanish version of the Owner’s Manual was meticulously rewritten in Spanish to reflect the appropriate language used in Spanish-speaking agricultural regions. “Direct translations of English documents into Spanish often lose the original intent of their meaning, especially in agriculture,” explains Product Manager Eduardo Mendías, author of the Spanish version of the Owner’s Manual. “We made sure the concept written in English was accurately and understandably conveyed in Spanish, which is not an easy undertaking. That’s why we say the Manual was rewritten in Spanish, not simply translated.”
Print copies of the Owner’s Manual are available for purchase on www.toro.com or at your local authorized Toro dealers for $15 each. Electronic versions may also be downloaded for free by visiting www.toro.com/agriculture. Quick Start Guide pamphlets are also available in print or for download, in both English and Spanish languages. They provide a brief overview of the Owner’s Manual, and are often used to educate farmers and others about drip irrigation technology.
