I recently purchased a moving wheel line for my property which has been irrigated via gated pipe. Flood irrigation has not worked well on this property, the grade is not sufficent, runs are too long, and gophers redirect the flow.
I purchased a (1/4 mi.)working wheel line sprinkler system with main line and need to install a tank and pump. The section I'm watering is approx 640 ft x 640ft (10 acres) and nearly sqaure, and Im groing grass hay on this field. The sprinler heads are approx 20ft apart on 5-inch pipe. I plan to direct irrigation water to a tank and pump from the tank. Does anyone have recomendations on a pump and tank size for this application?
