The Nelson team:
Making it right.

Our engineers and quality assurance personnel put every part of every product through military-grade testing and spend years fiddling with pressure chambers, 3-D printers, and test fields to find new ways of solving the oldest problems in irrigation.

Our roots run deep

Nelson traces its history of innovation back to 1911, when Lewen Russell Nelson invented the “Clincher” hose coupler and founded the Central Brass and Stamping Company.

Since Nelson Irrigation was founded in 1972, we’ve upheld Lewen’s spirit of innovation with flagship products like our Big Gun® Sprinklers, Rotator® Sprinklers, 3000 Series Pivot Products, as well as with numerous big and small parts that make a meaningful difference in the way our customers irrigate.
