Understanding Center Pivot Irrigation

Center pivot irrigation is a crop irrigation technique that involves irrigation equipment which revolves around a pivot. With this type of irrigation, crops within the radius of the pivot point are irrigated in a circular fashion.

Center pivot irrigation equipment is comprised of multiple steel or aluminum pipes. These pipes are connected by trusses to form a rigid framework. The trusses are anchored to the ground by wheeled towers. This overhead mechanism moves in a circular motion above the crops and applies water, supplied by the pivot point in the center, to the crops below through a sprinkler system that spans the length of the pipes.
