IrriGreen, based in Minnesota, was chosen as a semifinalist for the 11th annual MN Cup Competition.

IrriGreen designed, developed and commercialized the IrriGreen Genius Irrigation System, which uses digital technology adapted from commercial printers. According to the company, this design reduces water use for lawn irrigation by up to 50 percent and cuts contractor installation time by up to 70 percent.

“Applying software technology and nozzle design from the high-tech, commercial printer industry, IrriGreen Genius Sprinklers ‘print’ water in controlled patterns matching the shape of the lawn—no inefficient overlapping sprays, no overspraying onto sidewalks and streets,” said Gary Klinefelter, founder and CEO of IrriGreen. “IrriGreen requires just one sprinkler head in the center of each irrigation zone, not a row of 4 to 8 heads around the edges. Contractors save labor installing IrriGreen.”

The 70 semifinalists, who will compete for $327,000 in capital funding, were chosen from a pool of 1,300 entrants. The competition is one aspect of the program’s initiative to foster growth and support emerging entrepreneurs in Minnesota.
