What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

The motor, pump and even the power being used were already adequate to handle the added pipe and acreage. They just weren’t being fully utilized That's one example of the inefficien cies in sprinkler irrigation use and de sign uncovered in a recently completed study by ag engineers with the Montana Agricultural Experiment Station. The study involved 39 center pivot and wheel roll systems in Broadwater, Cascade and Yellowstone counties. It was conducted by graduate research assistant Robert Arrington under direc tion of Station ag engineers Charlie Bowman, now retired and Jerry Wcs- tesen \W e found mismatched mainlines, motors and pumps in a large portion of the systems tested\ said Wcstcsca ’Many farmers simply aren’t aware of the most efficient way to design and operate their irrigation systems. And that’s costing them money.\ The most significant finding, accord ing to Wcsicscn. was that motors and pumps in 11 of the 39 systems were being operated with the gate valve par tially closed The gate valve is normally installed just downstream of the pump at the beginning of the main lina Wcstcsen noted This valve helps prime the pump, if necessary. Also, it permits filling the main line slowly to prevent damage caused b> water surges and power over loads. However, in these 11 systems, the valve was being left partially closed to reduce :hc water pressure created by oversize pumps and motors, Wcstescn reported Otherwise, the sprinklers would operate improperly, creating a fine mist of water subject to wind drift \Buying an irrigation pump motor isn’t like buying a tractor, where you may need a bigger engine to provide reserve power to handle an occasional higher-than-normal load factor,\ Wcs tescn said An electric motor is de signed to operate most efficiently atone speed If the motor is too big for your system, you’re paying for more motor than you need not to mention unneces sary water and electricity.” He figured the coat of just the electri city being wasted thic way in the sur veyed systems averaged about $490 a year. Wcsicscn thinks some farmers may be buying their sprinkler systems on the basis of initial cost. \Smallcrdiamctcr pi/>c is Jess expen sive than larger sizes,\ he said How ever, unless it is matched with the proper size components and used cor rectly, it can cost more in the long run. in terms of breakdowns and lost efficien cy. than larger diameter main lines.\ lie suggested buying main lines on the basis of annual cost using several projected interest rates and powereosts. Annual cost includes initial cost of the system amortized over its life at a given rate of interest plus costs of mainte nance. repairs and energy. Other aids to matching sprinkler sys tem components to the job are computer programs, such as AG N ET s PUMP and PIPESIZE. which are available through Montana Cooperative Exten sion Service county agents. Wcstescn noics. - They permit you to quickly deter mine alternative annual costs under a variety of conditions,\ he said ' The programs arc also available for use by sprinkler designers and dealers In fact' many dealers offer their own compar able computer programs\ Both irrigator and dealer arc respon sible for properly matching sprinkler systems and components according to Wistcscn. *The system designer must make sure all components arc capable of delivering peak efficiency for the job to be \dona\ Wcstescn said \Then the irrigator must make sure the system is operated properly to achieve this ef ficiency.\ The Japan«« at on« time hung rad lobster», crabs and scarlet tangerines over thair doors at New Year's to indicat« hopes for long life and happiness. * 0 AND EVERY GOOD WISH FOR THE COMING NEW YEAR TO OUR FRIENDS AND CUSTOMERSI T h e P i o n e e r A t the e n d o f the y e a r , we would l i k t to express a special thank you to those o f y o u r who w r ite regular articles a n d columnsfor our newspaper: Lucille Anderson, J a n e Grosfield, O la f Brekke, Yvonne Monson, Byron Grosfield, a n d D iana M iller.
