Recent research has provided new knowledge on
managing irrigation water to decrease the degrading
effects of irrigation on the mineral quality of
drainage water and to increase crop yield and quality
by effective use of sprinkler irrigation.
In sprinkler irrigation, water is exposed to the
atmosphere, which enhances evaporation. The
evaporation process cools the droplets, increases
the heat absorbed by the droplets from the air
through which they pass, and adds water vapor to
the atmosphere. It has also been determined that
the plant as well as its environment can he cooled
with water applied by sprinklers.
