Valley is Helping to Sustainably Transform Sudan

The partnership between Valmont® Irrigation, through its Valley® brand, and Zadna International is stimulating Sudan’s transformation to become an agriculture-based economy. This assists with food security, while efficient technology empowers growers, employs more local people and produces greater yields with fewer water and energy resources.

Zadna is a joint venture between Sudanese public and private sectors to develop agricultural lands (supplying electricity, water, canals, center pivots) and selling them to farmers.

They needed a partner that could handle a huge irrigation project with difficult demands. How big? They required 1,450 center pivots to begin with. But that is not all. The project also required support to source financing for the project, installation of all the pivots, providing training to more than 600 technical staff in Sudan, ongoing service, and ready access to spare parts.

The project required the resources, experience and service only possible through Valley® Irrigation, a Valmont® company.

“Valmont was the partner of choice for this project because they are the market leader in mechanized irrigation,” says Abdelmahmoud Agmy, CEO of Zadna. “This project had quick turnaround times, with dedicated service technicians staying on site, and Valmont was able to provide that.”
