TORO Evolution AG Series Controller

Introducing Toro’s simple, intuitive and economical controller that gives both agricultural and horticultural growers the features they need now! The Evolution® AG is built on the award-winning Evolution platform, arrives with 4 stations installed, allows for modular expansion, fertilizer injection, pulse irrigation, propagation and misting schedules. All this plus the freedom to program valves to your specific needs: from 1 second to 24 hours.

  • Program valve runtime from 1 second to 24 hours
  • Operate up to 4 valves at one time
  • Manage 2 Fertilizer pumps
  • Wireless Valve Remote Control with 1,000 ft. range
  • Modular expansion: 4, 8, 12, and 16 valves

Revolutionary Interface:

The Evolution® AG Controller’s user interface was developed with the growers needs in mind. Shortcut buttons provide quick access to basic functions while the advanced menu appears on a backlit graphics display that navigates similar to many modern consumer electronic devices.

The Next Level of Agriculture:

The Evolution® AG Controller was designed to easily automate agricultural irrigation in a simple, straightforward way. Open and close irrigation and fertigation valves reliably, in farming conditions, 24/7.

Easy to Program & Operate:

  • Program any valve from 1 second to 24 hours
  • Easy manual runtime for water and fertilizer on any valve or schedule
  • Simple interface and familiar terminology

Two Fertilizer Programs:

  • Simple to program
  • Set delay time (to allow system filling and soil pre-wet) 
  • Set fertilizer pump runtime

The Next Level of Horticulture:

The Evolution® AG Controller was engineered to specifically address the needs of horticulture growers. Simple to program, it can water, mist, or both, in seconds, minutes, or hours. The Evolution® AG was also designed for remote control so you don’t have to run back to the controller just to change a valve.

  • Propagation & Watering With One Controller
  • Propagation / Misting Schedules
    • Program the valve runtime and delay time in seconds, minutes, or hours
    • Run up to 3 different schedules in different time window
  • Programming Freedom
    • Program any valve in seconds, minutes or hours
    • Easy manual runtime for water and fertilizer–any zone or schedule

Easy Fertilizing Programing: 

The Evolution® AG was developed to meet the needs of growers and is built to automate your watering and fertilizer injection tasks in a simple, and straight forward way.

  • Fertilize with every watering, or select specific days
  • Assign up to two fertilizer pumps to each valve
  • Fertilizer pumps are prevented from operating when no watering valve is operating

Pulse Irrigation can be useful in:

  • High clay soils where runoff occurs before the desired amount of irrigation has been applied
  • Sandy soils where irrigation loss to deep percolation occurs before the desired amount of irrigation has been applied
  • Subsurface Drip Irrigation (SDI) where the goal is to push water up to the surface for germination for plant establishment, or to maximize the wetted soil volume
  • Container grown nursery stock, or hanging baskets, where excessive drainage can be wasteful or messy.

Misting and Propagation:

Built To promote growth & control, the Evolution® AG controller makes it extremely simple to create a misting schedule with a few easy steps.

  1. Select Schedule Type: Looping 
  2. Select Schedule Start Time
  3. Select Schedule End Time
  4. Select Valves To Run
