irrigated area

Irrigated acreages

Irrigated acreage, when combined with the crop water needs, form the basis for the system water requirement. Thus, accurate field measurements properly size the center pivot and also help determine the volume of water to be pumped. – Determine the precise field dimensions and draw a scaled field map. Label all dimensions. – Generally, the…

Pivot management

The system design printout includes a precipitation chart that lists the total inches (mm) of water applied for different speed settings on the central control panel. Runoff control Runoff from center pivot irrigation can be controlled by changing the optional speed control setting to adapt the precipitation rate to the soil infiltration rate. Agronomic methods…

connection between chemigation, fertigation and irrigation

Center Pivots: chemigation and fertigation

There is a strong connection between chemigation, fertigation and irrigation, the goal being for each plant to receive a uniform quantity of water and additive. Uniformity of application is indeed the essential factor in successful fertigation and chemigation. Uniformity depends on several factors such as the homogeneity of water application, adjustment and use of injection…
