Center-pivot irrigation (sometimes called central pivot irrigation), also called circle irrigation, is a method of crop irrigation in which equipment rotates around a pivot and crops are watered with sprinklers. A circular area centered on the pivot is irrigated, often creating a circular pattern in crops when viewed from above (sometimes referred to as crop circles). Most center pivots were initially water-powered, and today most are propelled by electric motors.
Center-pivot irrigation Is a form of overhead sprinkler irrigation consisting of several segments of pipes of galvanized steel joined together and supported by trusses, mounted on wheeled towers with sprinklers positioned along its length.
The machine moves in a circular pattern and is fed with water from the pivot point at the center of the circle. This system makes it possible to irrigate large surfaces with low installation and maintained costs.
