Corn growers using irrigation get almost 30% more yield than those who only rely on rainfall. Irrigation is critical during the reproductive growth stages (tasseling, silking, and pollination) when water stress can significantly impact yield potential.
Various Senninger sprinklers have proved beneficial for corn irrigation, helping farmers increase yields with more efficient water practices. They can provide adequate moisture to meet the crop ET demands based on planting date, maturity group, location, and weather. Wobbler sprinklers, LEPA bubblers, and spray nozzles developed by Senninger have also helped corn irrigators reduce their water usage and energy consumption.
The i-Wob®2 provides the most uniform water distribution compared to any pivot applicator on the market. Its protective shroud guards the sprinkler’s wear surface from the splashing of adjacent sprinklers, grit, and direct UV damage. Designed to last longer in the field, it combines a tough exterior with a gentle rain-like application.
The Xcel-Wobbler™ TOP takes the instantaneous, uniform distribution pattern of Wobbler® technology to top-of-pipe applications. It produces large wind-resistant droplets in a gentle rain-like application. With its low 10 psi operating pressure and wide area of coverage, it is more economical than other sprinkler packages.
Control Your Pressure
Every system experiences pressure fluctuations, resulting in unwanted flow deviations and over and under-watering. Regulators maintain a constant preset outlet pressure with varying inlet pressures, which alleviates pressure differences that can cause an applicator’s area of coverage to change.
Senninger® black and white pressure regulators are renowned for their accuracy, durability, and ability to maintain the overall efficiency of an irrigation system.

Ryan Leatch's pivot equipped with the i-Wob2 is now able to apply water at a rate of 18 mm a day using only 11 kW at the pump, which reduced his energy expenses to approximately AUD 3.19 per hour. With a uniformity co-efficiency of 98.4% he knows he is making the most out of every drop pumped.
