hooking irrigation pump to auto sprinklers...

We have a lady that has an irrigation pump and one main line that has hose bibs. We are going to install a sprinkler system with automatic valves. It is a small lawn (3 zones). My question: Can the pump be wired directly to the controll box? I'm brain dead when it comes to the electronic stuff (most of our systems come off of city water = no pump) What is involved in making the pump turn on when the automatic valves engage?

We will install a low flow cutoff to keep the pump from burning up in the case of low or lacking ditch water.
