Advantages of Sprinkler Irrigation System.
Suitable to all types of Soil (except heavy clay) and Suitable for Irrigating Crops where the plant population per unit area is very high & Most Suitable for Oil Seeds and other Cereal and Vegetable Crops.
Water Saving & Controlling.
Saves more Water then other types of Irrigation. Closer control of Water Application Convenient for Giving Light and Frequent Irrigation and Higher Water Application Efficiency, & Increase in Yield, Better Farming.
Mobility of Sprinklers System plays a major role in Irrigation, mobility helps farmers to distribute more water supply using same set of sprinklers which is Cost effective, and Economic for Farmers.
Spray heads at the outlets distribute the water over the entire soil surface. Sprinklers provide efficient coverage for small to large areas and are suitable for all types of crops.
Operations and Maintenance.
The operation and maintenance of irrigation equipment for gardens, such as sprinkle or spray heads, is not tricky and thus easy to handle for everyone.
When water quality is very low (e.g. wastewater) and/or solvable fertilizer was added, workers should not stand close to the irrigated field to avoid contact with the water.
Response of Different Crops to Sprinkler Irrigation.
Crops Response to Sprinkler Manufacturer.
The Trials conducted in different parts of the country revealed Water Saving due to Sprinkler System varies from 16 to 70 % over the traditional method with Yield increase from 3 to 57 % in different Crops and Agro-Climatic Conditions. Source : INCID (1998)
