Drip vs Overhead Irrigation (Part 5)

Browsing Posts in Uncategorized

Originally published in Growing Magazine’s July 2014 issue. Minimal investments for a strong ROI For large-scale commercial growers, overhead irrigation is more economically feasible. Drip systems typically cost $500 to $1,200 or more per acre. Part of the total cost is capital investment, and another part is the annual cost of disposable components. In some […]

Originally published in Growing Magazine’s July 2014 issue. Less Complicated Farm Management at a Lower Cost After switching to drip irrigation, growers initially use less water, save money and get similar yields as they did with an overhead system. Once that first year passes, the grower realizes that the system is complex and high-maintenance. Replicating […]

It’s all about the soil The outstanding distribution uniformity of wobbler technology is one the reasons that the i-Wob is the most imitated sprinkler of the irrigation industry. The off-center rotary action of a grooved deflector combines with the wobbling action to create consistently-sized droplets. Unlike stream-driven sprinklers, the i-Wob instantaneously covers a 360° area. […]

Sprinklers like the Xcel-Wobbler can protect crops during radiation frosts by covering them with a thin layer of water and letting the latent heat from the freezing process keep the plant above freezing temperatures. Growers across the world have used heaters, wind machines, insulation and even helicopters to prevent frost damage as air temperatures start […]

CLERMONT, Fla., August 26, 2013—Senninger Irrigation, a global leader in agricultural irrigation manufacturing, has developed new riser adapter components that make the installation and removal of sprinklers faster and more efficient. Senninger’s Quick-Connect Riser Adapter gives growers the ability to simply disconnect the assembly from the lateral and move the sprinkler around a field or […]

Everyone enjoyed lunch at Senninger’s headquarters and several prizes were awarded from random drawings. James Burks, president of Senninger, thanked everyone for their commitment through 2012 and into 2013. Mark and Andy […]

by Ben van den Heever, B.Ing (Civil Engineering) In the past, an irrigation designer was reliant on the surveyor’s data to provide an accurate digital terrain model. In many cases when the data was not available, the designer would proceed as if working on a flat surface or make vague assumptions about the terrain. Looking […]

The system capacity (flow rate) needed to adequately irrigate an area is dependent on the: Peak crop water requirements during the growing season Effective crop rooting depth Texture and infiltration rate of the soil The available water-holding capacity of the soil If the water source is a one or more wells, the well or wells’ […]
