Main topic Irrigation
Irrigation, pertaining agriculture, is artificial application of water to a field or soil. Usually irrigation is done to grow agricultural crops, maintain landscapes and rejuvenate degraded soils.
Sprinkler irrigation systems deliver the water overhead and they can be permanently fixed or made movable in the agricultural field. The sprinkling direction itself can be fixed in one direction, in a complete circle or in a half- circle. This system requires high energy, requiring high pressure pumps operating on electricity or diesel. There are many modifications of this system like central pivot and lateral move irrigation systems.
