Depending on your geographic location and climate, using irrigation systems may be a necessity. Used in various countries around the world, center pivots can be used to irrigate over longer distances while employing minimal man-hours. These systems can precisely manage watering options with their high-tech control boxes. It is also possible to apply certain liquid fertilizers and pesticides through the system.
Traditionally pivots were recommended for large square-, rectangular-or circular-shaped fields without obstacles like trees, fences, roads, etc. Now, optional equipment such as “corners” allows farmers to irrigate around those objects effectively.
