Built on the award-winning Evolution platform, the Evolution® AG controller is a simple, intuitive and economical ag controller that gives agricultural and horticultural growers the features they need to best manage water usage and other inputs.

The Evolution AG was developed to fit the everyday needs of growers, and features programming designed specifically for agricultural and horticultural applications.  This includes the ability for the grower to control the opening and closing of irrigation and fertigation valves reliably at any determined schedule.  Simple to program, the Evolution AG can be set to water, mist or both in seconds, minutes or hours.Evolution AG Controller for Agriculture and Horticulture

“Our agricultural customers were clear that they needed a moderately priced controller that used familiar ag terminology, was easy to program and performed the basic functions of watering and fertilizing,” says Fred Harned, product manager for Toro Ag.  “Additionally, our horticultural customers requested a controller that could perform both watering and misting for cooling or propagation.  We believe the Evolution AG meets these needs and more. It’s simple, basic, reliable and grower oriented.”
