CENTER-PIVOT IRRIGATION SYSTEMS

Center-pivot irrigation, or water-wheel or circle irrigation, involves a central pivot point around which sprinklers rotate to water crops. This efficient method creates circular crop patterns, reduces water usage, and optimizes yields. Modern systems are powered by electric motors and use advanced nozzles for uniform water distribution. Widely used globally, especially in arid regions, it boosts agricultural productivity while conserving water.

Zimmatic centre pivots are made with precision, and each component is carefully designed to run trouble-free for years. Technologically advanced Zimmatic control panels can also be added to any brand of centre pivots.

LATERAL MOVE IRRIGATION

Lateral irrigation systems, such as Zimmatic, are akin to center pivots but move continuously along the field’s length. This self-propelled design ensures nearly uniform coverage of up to 98% of the field area, optimizing water use and enhancing crop yields.
