Pivot irrigation is an innovative technology helping to achieve new efficiencies in agriculture across Australia. This contemporary form of irrigation uses rotating equipment to efficiently and evenly distribute water across crop paddocks. This method helps to save more water whilst boosting crop productivity and yields. Discover how Hydrosmart is helping drive efficiencies in agriculture through innovative water conditioning solutions for center pivot irrigation systems.
Benefits of Center Pivot Irrigation
Compared to other systems such as sprinkler, drip, furrow and terraced irrigation systems, the center provides multiple advantages:
- Water huge areas of land with minimal labour
- Uniform water distribution using pressurised control valves
- Ability to adjust the watering pattern, flow rate and duration of irrigation
Efficient, accurate and consistent water application enhances crop yield, promoting the growth of healthy, high-quality harvests. It also reduces runoff and other issues that occur from uneven watering. Center pivot irrigators are compatible with fertilisers and herbicides according to current needs.
Improving Pivot Irrigation Performance with Water Conditioning
When it comes to large-scale crop irrigation, a reliable water supply is essential. In Australia, bore water is commonly used for crop watering. Adequate water conditioning is needed to address issues like salinity affecting crop performance as well as scale build-up and corrosion from hard water causing damage to irrigation infrastructure.
Reverse osmosis is commonly highlighted as a solution for treating salinity in bore water, but these systems tend to be too costly and impractical to install on larger-scale center pivot irrigation systems. In addition, they aren’t able to prevent mineral deposits and corrosion from hard water.
Hydrosmart Water Conditioning Technology
Hydrosmart water conditioning systems address both salinity and hard water issues in center pivot irrigation systems. Using resonant frequencies, Hydrosmart breaks down larger mineral particles into tiny ones that can safely pass through all water supply. This prevents scale build-up, soil compaction and other adverse effects associated with bore water and hard water supplies.
