The lateral ( Linear ) move systems allow farmers to irrigate up to 98 percent of a square or a rectangular field, as well as 'L-shaped' fields. With a choice of water supply and guidance systems, each linear move system can be customized to individual needs. These systems are designed to irrigate fields from 3 to 13 hectares.
Water Supply Options
Three main methods are used to supply the lateral move system with irrigation water:-
- Hose-Fed systems
- Ditch-Fed systems
- Enclosed Pipeline systems
