Online newspaper The Fence Post recently posted an article about the history of the center pivot.  The article illustrates the life of inventor Frank Zybach, the inventor of the first center pivot mechanized irrigation machine.

"Like tractors, center pivot irrigation is one of the staples of modern-day agriculture.  The Irrigation Association calls the center pivot irrigation system 'without a doubt the greatest advancement in agriculture since the McCormick reaper.'  The Scientific American says that center pivot is 'perhaps the most significant mechanical innovation in agriculture since the replacement of draft animals by the tractor.'"
