Irrigating the plants in the form of sprinklers using sprinkler pipes, additional part elements, and sprinklers.
Steep, sloping, and wavy terrains that cannot be watered using surface irrigation methods can be irrigated by sprinkler method with no or little amount of leveling. In the sprinkler method, there is no water loss by way of penetrating to the depths, transmission, and surface flow. Thus, water is used very efficiently. There is no risk of erosion.
Surface irrigation in sloping agricultural land leads to surface flows which may cause serious erosion problems.
Erosion control has countless challenges. Sprinkling can be practiced successfully in this type of land without creating an erosion problem. It is possible to cultivate larger lands. Since there is no need for channels and ditches within the field in the sprinkling method, the area of cultivated land is increased, leading to increased production. Fertilizing can be done using irrigation water.
When using a sprinkler system the plants can be supplied with soluble fertilizer without the need for extra labor. It facilitates Soil Preparation. Tempering water needed for the planting process can be provided in the best manner using the sprinkling method. Irrigation labor is minimized. Sprinkler irrigation system saves from irrigation labor to a degree incomparable with surface irrigation methods
ADVANTAGES OF THE SPRINKLER
- It has an lower water consumption than flood irrigation systems
- Presents a highly adaptable to rough terrain, with large differences in elevation at the surface.
- Allows dose the water with good accuracy.
- Its distribution depends on the wind plant material, although at low speeds is very homogeneous.
- Used for application of frost irrigation and the application of phytohormones.
