Linear and Pivot Irrigation
Linear Irrigation has once again shown to be successful as an improved method of crop irrigation, giving accuracy of application and economical use of water and manpower. Options in either Centre Pivot or Linear mode can be used and full automation is also available. New in 2001 was the Omega cart which has the ability to call the operator on his mobile ‘phone, should the linear stop for any reason.
Complementing the existing Perrot spans is the addition of the Zimmatic range of centre pivots, as produced by Lindsay Manufacturing Co., which have proved very successful throughout the world. NEW for 2003 was an extending end overhang, which allows the customer to reach into corners previously unwaterable by centre pivots. Being a very economical method of irrigation, Linear, Mini Linear or Pivot systems deserve consideration at every possible application.
Installed in November 2005 in the east of England is our largest Pivot at 703m (14 spans long), which irrigates almost 1 mile square without the attention of the operator!
