We at TEAM Irrigation understand that manure from dairy operations must be distributed in a way that limits the potential for surface runoff, deep percolation, drift to off-target areas and odor. We can help you develop a nutrient management plan using center pivot equipment for site-specific application.
|Irrigate a larger area: Center pivot and linear irrigation can efficiently cover more acres evenly compared to other methods of irrigation.|
|No land leveling needed: When using center pivot and linear irrigation, there is no need to level cropland, as is required when using flood irrigation, which means that precious, nutritious topsoil is not lost.|
|Fewer labor demands: One man can operate several center pivots or linears at one time.|
|Conservation of clean water: By recycling effluent waste on crop lands, fresh water can be conserved.|
|Uniformity of application: An even distribution of material can be achieved easily and automatically.|
|Use less fertilizer: Fertilizer requirements are reduced as process wash water returns many of the needed soil nutrients.|
