Center pivot irrigation is designed to maximize water efficiency. By delivering water directly to the root zone of crops, it reduces water waste through evaporation and runoff. This precision irrigation helps farmers use water more efficiently, a crucial factor in regions with limited water resources or facing water scarcity.
This method has revolutionized agriculture, helping producers to increase productivity while using water resources more efficiently and sustainably. The technology continues to evolve, with ongoing research and innovations aimed at further improving water management through Variable Rate Irrigation (VRI) and precision agriculture practices.
Honeywell Delivers Durability and Accuracy
Throughout center-pivot systems, these Honeywell devices provide durability, extended operating life, and accuracy in the demanding environment of agricultural irrigation where they’re subjected to vibration from equipment, temperature extremes, chemicals, dust, and splashing or hose-directed water.
Since their introduction within the agriculture market segment, center-pivot irrigation systems have relied on Honeywell’s MICRO SWITCH technology to provide accurate and consistent performance year-after-year in some of the most challenging environments. As these irrigation designs have evolved, so have the MICRO SWITCH products.
