The longest pivot in the north
A Pivot Centerstar with 15 spans, overhang and corner arm turned out to be the ideal system for Svante’s requirements. Overall, the system reaches a length of 900m and irrigates an area of 120 hectares. Svante is proud to own the longest pivot in the northern hemisphere.
Since different crops such as cereals, potatoes, beetroot and broccoli are grown at the same time on the area to be irrigated, VRI was a must. In addition, there are paths that separate the individual field areas from one another and that should not be irrigated. In light of such requirements, the VRI system can fully demonstrate its strengths. Thanks to the flexible individual nozzle control, the water dose can be precisely adjusted to each crop in its respective growth stage. Paths or fallow fields can be left out regardless of their shape. It all works fully automatically and can be controlled remotely using a smartphone.
This precision is essential for Svante, because the water collected in winter must last for the whole season.
Diese Präzision ist für Svante unerlässlich, denn das im Winter gesammelte Wasser muss für die ganze Saison reichen.
