Roberts Ltd Irrigation field service staff based in Devonport, completed on site installation of the complete Irrigation package in September 2013. The system was placed into immediate use after completion, irrigating poppies and potato crops.
A liquid based fertigation system was also installed as part of the system, hence the customers requirement for a poly lined Zimmatic pivot Irrigator.A second pivot was on Beau and Anna Gooch’s five year plan if all went well in season one.
After a successful Irrigation season Beau requested a design and quotation for a nine span Zimmatic, 515 metre half circle poly lined irrigator covering approximately 43 Ha. on the western side of the transmission towers.
This second pivot will also apply liquid fertiliser via a dosing pump located at the first pivot site to avoid duplication of equipment.
The main structure and pipe work and mains on the second pivot were installed by Roberts Ltd field service staff and contractors in May 2014.
