Abstract

CRITERIA for the design, construction, and operation of an experimental buried lateral, gravity multiset irrigation system are presented. The system operating without automatic controls has a potential water application efficiency of 80 percent with very little runoff or erosion. With automatic controls and with water available on demand, light, frequent irrigations can be applied with 90 to 95 percent efficiencies. The energy required to operate the system is minimal and only periodic inspection and maintenance services are required of the operator. Estimated cost and benefits indicate that this system may be economically feasible, practical, and attractive with increasing energy costs and labor shortages.
