Kamloops' locale can provide one of the best growing environments for crops around, as long as your fields stay wet when they need it!
A center pivot system contains a central pump/water intake platform that usually pulls in water from an underground, mainline or well-based source. This water is then pumped down the length of the equipment's span, also called the lateral. This allows the sprinklers to provide irrigation to a large area with only one source of water.
One of the main advantages to a center pivot sprinkler system is its ability to cover massive areas of land very quickly. If your fields are primarily flat, these efficient water delivery systems can cover of a lot of ground! While some center pivot systems are powered and moved entirely by water, most newer pivots include small electrical motors to facilitate the movement of the sprinkler's spans. As the long arm of the pivot irrigation system moves, all of the crops that pass underneath the lateral are watered with accuracy and efficiency.
Another major advantage of these unique machines is the amount of control they offer to any irrigation system. Soil water content can be monitored and individual center pivot systems can be controlled separately to target only the plants that need moisture the most. Different crops can be separated into smaller, localized areas and receive customized watering schedules unique to each plant's requirements.
Like any good investment, a center pivot system is not a small thing to get started. With Delta Irrigation here to help, your center pivot system can be installed and maintained with ease.
