Pivot at the highest technical level
Withstands heavy winds
The central pivot system satisfies the highest European quality standards, is 400 m long, has 7 towers and irrigates approximately 50 ha. Operating the system requires 42 liters of water per second, and a complete circuit with a minimal irrigation amount of 5 mm takes 16 hours. The system requires 40 hp for the pump and an additional 5.25 hp to move the seven towers of the pivot.
The system is constantly and continuously in use and can withstand both “normal” wind speeds of 50 to 60 km/h and peak wind speeds of up to 184 km/h.
The pivot is supplied with water from the Said River, which is channeled onto the property through a 7 km canal built by the farm owners.
