Lords Votes in Favour of Irrigationback to list
20 September 2003
Lords' head groundsman, Michael Hunt, couldnít have picked a better time than this yearís recent hot summer to install the home of cricketís first automatic irrigation system.
Put in as part of the groundís overhaul, the system has a Toro Gemini pc-based control system that runs the whole watering programme for him.
Before the overhaul, travelling sprinklers were used which made irrigation very time-consuming and invariably meant watering at the wrong time.
With the new system, the sprinklers can be programmed to come on at the optimum time, usually overnight. It is also possible to spot-water specific areas, using Geminiís hand-held radio remote controller.
