Advantages of Pivot Irrigation on Tall Crops

Per acre/hectare cost of irrigating with a pivot is lower than with other irrigation methods Center pivot systems last longer than drip systems and they are almost 100% recyclable More efficient watering compared to furrow and hose-reels and as efficient as drip Labor/time savings – systems are automatic and a single technician can manage 25 or more pivots especially if using FieldNET remote wireless irrigation management system Chemigation and fertigation can be done through the pivot and its uniform watering pattern will result in less waste of chemicals Special spray nozzles apply water underneath the tree canopy and above the root zone to increase growth while minimizing plant disease.
