To minimize disease and maximize growth
A Valley center pivot or linear applies the right amount of water exactly where you want it: over canopy, in canopy or below canopy.
If you are cost-conscious
The per-hectare/acre cost of irrigating with Valley pivots and linears is significantly lower than other irrigation methods, including drip, micro-spray and overhead sprinkler.
Plus, with remote management technology, one person can operate multiple irrigation machines, saving both time and labor costs.
Longer equipment lifespan compared to drip, micro-spray and overhead sprinkler irrigation.
If you have concerns about earning money until your tall crops produce
Pivot irrigation offers early ROI. You can plant seasonal crops (such as onions or potatoes) between the tree rows during early stages of tree growth to achieve ROI prior to production.
