Center pivot systems offer many advantages over other irrigation application methods:

- Ability to apply to more shallow depths
- Uniform distribution of water
- Increased ability to plan and schedule irrigation applications

- Little annual setup required
The SKIP (SISILI – KULPAWN IRRIGATION PROJECT) irrigation project has enabled the Nucleus Estate to have 2 cropping seasons in each farming year – the WET SEASON (April to September) and the DRY SEASON (October to March.)
