IRRIGATION SYSTEM-DESIGN FOR MULTIPLE CROPPING OPERATIONS Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • Development of moving truss irrigation machines capable of performing every function necessary to produce a crop could revolutionize agricultural production systems by replacing high horsepower tractors and multiple pieces of equipment. A multifunction irrigation system was designed and developed for the purpose of applying both water and chemicals through separate nozzle systems from the same basic moving pipe and tower structure. A mobile irrigator planting system has now been added which also has subsurface fertilizer injection capability to greatly increase the multifunctional operation of the entire system.
