Droplet Size, Application Intensity and Application Rate

Browsing Posts tagged application rate

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. […]

Why Are Boom Systems Helpful?

Using center pivots, farmers are able to provide a uniform and efficient irrigation method for growing many different crops. Although, many times surface water run-off and unnecessary wheel rutting can pose a problem for certain types of soil. So, what can growers do to help prevent these irrigation issues? Utilizing boom systems is an essential […]

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’ […]

Different soil types respond differently to water. When it comes to irrigation, application rate must match your soil’s ability to absorb water. High application rates can create surface sealing and runoff, carrying surface soil away. Applying the water at a rate that matches the soil’s needs allows the water to penetrate the soil slowly. Application […]

A sprinkler profile illustrates where water falls in relation to the sprinkler. This is based on flow, pressure, and height. A denso-gram illustrates the distribution uniformity from this information based on spacing. A single applicator’s uniformity is only part of the picture. The effect of overlapping applicator footprints or, in the case of mechanical move […]
