The property is located on the corner of CR 301 and 302. A large share of the total cost of irrigation results from ownership costs and a large percentage of ownership costs are not annual out-of-pocket costs but rather “sunk” costs. So they last a pretty long time when properly maintained. 0000006296 00000 n 0000009668 00000 n 0000004982 00000 n 160 acre non-towable center pivot (PDF) 160 acre corner system center pivot (PDF) 80 acre furrow irrigation (PDF) 2019 SEMO irrigation systems spreadsheets; Show/Hide Archived Southeast Missouri Crop Budgets. 0000008260 00000 n The "fair share" can be calculated on the added acres irrigated or on the amount of water applied.

S. A. With no-till farming and a savings of 3 to 5 acre-inches of irrigation water, the annual operating cost savings range from $20.10 per acre to $33.50 per acre. The number of acres covered by each 1,295-foot pivot also varies between Cases 1 and 2. (the other 50% interest is owned by the land owner to the North.)
