Center-pivot automatization for agrochemical use
Salse, José Antonio
MetadataShow full item record
This paper presents an agrochemical application system that could be incorporated into existing irrigating center-pivots. The system consisted of a hydraulic circuit with emitters, where the dose was individually controlled with variable valve timing. This paper describes the electronic control system,
designed to be modular and distributed along the pivot. The main problem solved was the determination of the emitter’s absolute displacement to generate their adequate timing control. The paper ends with the test of a low-cost implementation of the complete system under real center-pivot operation.

Rodríguez Puerta, Francisco; Blanco Ortiz, Ricardo; Aunós Gómez, Álvaro (Instituto Nacional de Investigación y Tecnología Agraria y Alimentaria, 2015)Aim of study: Cross-sectional area is one of the most important forest inventory variable since it is highly correlated with growth and yield at both tree and stand levels. In this research, we evaluated the bias, precision ...
