About a million acres of land in Nebraska are being irrigated by all types
of sprinkler systems. Uniform water distribution by these systems is important
to optimize crop yield and quality, allow minimum sprinkler system capacity and
power requirements, and make more efficient use of the available irrigation water
supplies. Even distribution of water over the soil surface is important to irrigated
agriculture, but more important is uniform distribution of the water in the
soil to optimize production where water is the limiting production factor.
