I couldn't get my link to work. But Google Utube should do the job. Center Pivot Irrigation Systems

There's irrigation=pivot (~19k), more than irrigated=center_pivot (~150).

I think the circles will probably be seasonal, but in a this climate maybe a continual rotation ( no pun) of crops might be grown so maybe it should just mapped as arable land.
