I have always wondered how long it takes an irrigation pivot to pay for its self? Alot of farmers in my area have irrigation, but most are irrigating poorer fields. I have pretty good soil on the ground I recentlly bought but its a 65 acre mostlly square field and I wonder if it would be a good investment to look into irrigating it in the future. Its a big investment, some say they wouldnt spend the money and some say they wont farm without it. Im probably only thinking about it becuase its so hot and dry around here right now, but if we have another hot and dry summer this year it would make the 4th dry summer in a row for this area. Im sure a Nebraska farmer could answer this question but any advice is appreciated
