Runoff under low pressure center Pivot systems

Reduced low pressure center Pivot irrigation systems can use one-third less energy than their high-pressure counterparts. But they also may increase irrigation water runoff and soil erosion unless properly sited and managed, according to a four-year study by the University of Nebraska. The study concluded that reduced low-pressure center Pivots increase the rate that irrigation…


Slope limitations

Structural and drive unit power design limit the climbing capability of center Pivots. There’s to measure all questionable field slopes to assure Pivot irrigation system compatibility.
