2 Agricultural Water Pumping Systems Built to Withstand Any Task

WP Law - Thursday, January 21, 2021

Crops can’t grow without the right irrigation, and irrigation isn’t successful without the right water pumping systems. From watering plant roots to frost protection, without the right systems in place, you risk the welfare of your crops. With that in mind, take a look at two agricultural water pumping systems built to withstand any task.

#1: Overhead Systems

In traditional agriculture, overhead irrigation simply means the water comes down onto the plants through the use of sprinklers. With reliable pumping systems, the water comes through nozzles to provide adjustable amounts of irrigation to your particular plants. Overhead systems include:

  • Impact sprinklers
  • Movable aluminum piping
  • Traveling systems
  • Effluent spray fields
  • Frost protection applications
  • Wet log storage

#2: Drip Irrigation

Unlike overhead applications, drip irrigation puts water right at the roots through pump systems that deliver water either right above or right below the soil surface. The benefits of a drip system include losing less water to evaporation and maintaining nutrients in the soil. The primary applications for drip irrigation include:

  • Orchards
  • Vineyards
  • Truck crops such as berries, corn, tomatoes, and watermelon
  • Sub-surface drip systems

For any irrigation to be effective, it has to have a pumping system built to meet the task. Sometimes, conventional equipment fits the bill for your needs. Other times, you want and need a custom design to make sure your crops are getting the water they need when they need it. The good news is there’s a team of experts that can handle both. With over 100 years of experience, they’re your go-to for all of your agricultural water pumping needs. Contact W.P. Law, Incorporated today to get started.
