I’ve become involved on a large agriculture related claim. Now, as a west coast city dwelling/latte sipping elite, I have had to do some extra work to get up to speed on the systems involved. This isn’t a claim in my local jurisdiction, but another part of Canada.
The equipment is a large (1/2 mile long!) central pivot irrigation system. Essentially a long sprinkler boom that pivots around a central pumping station. The wheels support the boom ad help drive it with electric motors in the hubs.
As they pivot around a fixed point, they water a perfect circle, which is why you see so many circular fields as you fly over the prairies/great plains.
They are loaded with sensors, connected to computer programs to monitor for different issues and quality in crop.
The claim itself, I can’t speak about, but these things are not cheap. I just thought this kinda thing was interesting and that I would share.
