1. Normally you re-use the drop pipe. Would that apply?
2. If you have steel casing the recommendation would differ than if you have PVC casing. With steel, I would be looking to an SQ pump.
3. a 1 HP 20gpm pump is way overkill for a house, but would be ok if doing a lot of higher volume irrigation.

4. If irrigating your farm for hours on end, you will want a more power-efficient pump.

The SQ pumps are 2-wire.
The Grundfos 10SQ05-200 or 5sq05-180 look appropriate to me.
I will message a couple shopping links.

You can put a flow inducer shroud around it or not.

My favorite 1HP for that depth would be the 16S10 Grundfos. But brand name pumps are not that much better than box store pumps these days, so I wouldn't pay several times as much for one. Just search for a 16 to 22 GPM, 1HP pump as there are countless possibilities these days. Just don't get one with iron end bells and motor adapter, Plastic, brass, or SS is best. Even the cheap pumps will last a long time if you don't let them cycle themselves to death. Since cycling on and off is what causes most pump failures, adding a Cycle Stop Valve will make any pump last longer. Cycle Stop Valves have been making pumps last longer since 1993, which I believe is the main reason pump manufacturers have cheapened up their pumps even more.
