The influence of wind on sprinkler irrigation performance is a major consideration
for designers of agricultural sprinkler systems. The efficiency of a sprinkler system
depends upon the amount of loss which occurs during irrigation and on the
uniformity of application. Wind is a major factor affecting losses, and since
sprinklers are used in all countries where irrigation is practiced, wind effects are of
widespread concern.
