Publisher Description

Centre pivots and lateral moves (CPLM) are pressurised irrigation systems that supply water to crops or pastures. They are suitable for a wide range of broadacre farming enterprises, different soil types and undulating terrain. 


This book is about:

• the components of centre pivot and linear move irrigation systems

• unique features of CPLM pressurised irrigation systems 

• fundamentals of a pressurised irrigation system and their impact on efficiency

• measuring performance of CPLM systems 

• pressure and discharge tests on a pressurised irrigation system

• pressure and discharge variations

• how the performance characteristics impact on total water use and crop uniformity

• evaluating the function of an irrigation system.

This book focuses on the water delivery aspects and the key measures of efficiency: Field Application Efficiency, Distribution Uniformity, Average Application Rate and Average Application Depth per Pass.
