Our client was faced with two narrow paddocks that ran perpendicular to each other. These blocks were too narrow for centre pivots however they were suitable for lateral move irrigators.
To maximise return on investment, TEAM Irrigation designed an irrigation system that could irrigate both paddocks, enabling the client to grow lucerne for hay production on two paddocks.
A turntable pivots the lateral move irrigator 90 degrees from one paddock to the next.
Paddock one was 1050m long, paddock two was 1390m long.
