Irrigating with low application intensity helps prevent soil compaction and preserve soil structure. This critical aspect of sprinkler performance is similar to the need for wide tires to reduce soil compaction.
Wobblers distribute water at a rate that closely matches a soil’s infiltration rate. This helps maximize irrigation efficiency and minimize erosion.
In contrast, high application intensity can damage the soil surface. Water builds up and causes small soil particles to become suspended. As the water is absorbed, the smaller particles come to rest on the surface and restrict infiltration.
