It is compatible with most inputs and can be used in conventional and organic farming. Xena improves the coverage and retention of agricultural sprays on the plant surface. It is a blend of three nonionic surfactants that increase spreading of applied spray droplets. Upon drying, Xena aids in adhering agrochemicals to the plant surface by forming a thin, transparent film composed of plant-derived polysaccharides, rather than synthetic polymers. Xena is now available in for sale in Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Florida, Massachusetts, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Texas, Washington and Wisconsin.

With Reinke's patent-pending Maintenance-Free Bearing, the need to do all that work is gone. The Maintenance-Free Bearing is designed to last the lifetime of the system, using the same high-quality specifications of all Reinke's products. The product is available on new Reinke irrigation systems using an 8-inch pivot bearing, but can also be retrofitted onto existing 8-inch Electrogator II center pivots.

In addition, the Alloway HV-8R22 requires less tractor power than competitive machines—only a maximum of 275 horespower PTO power.
