Concepts of In-Canopy and Near-Canopy Sprinkler Irrigation Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • The use of in-canopy and near-canopy sprinkler application from mechanical move systems is prevalent in the U. S. Great Plains. These systems can reduce evaporative by nearly 15%, but introduce a much greater potential for irrigation non-uniformity. Close attention to the design, installation and operational guidelines for these systems can prevent many non-uniformity problems from becoming unmanageable. © 2006 ASCE.
