Sprinkler irrigation systems distribute water by
spraying it over the fields. The water is piped under
pressure to the fields. The pressure forces the
water through sprinklers or through perforations
or nozzles in pipelines and thus forms a spray.
Sprinkling is man's imitation of natural rainfall.
Nearly all irrigable soils can be sprinkler irrigated.
It is difficult, however, to sprinkler-irrigate
if the water intake rate of your soil is less than
0.10 inch per hour.
