Abstract
  • Sprinkler irrigation is gaining in importance as a method of applying water to crops throughout the Northwest. Of the several reasons for this rapid gain in popularity, the principal one is that you can readily adapt it to conditions where surface methods are not successful. The sprinkler method is particularly well suited to irrigating coarse, sandy, and gravelly soils, especially when these soils are shallow and cannot be prepared correctly for surface irrigation. You can also use sprinkler irrigation quite successfully on steep and irregular slopes. With few exceptions, you can use it to irrigate any crop grown in the Northwest. Water applied to the soil by sprinklers is not necessarily better than water put on in furrows or by flooding. The important part of irrigating is to get the right amount of moisure into the soil where growing crops can use it. Any method which accomplishes this without unreasonable waste of water, soil, time, and effort is satisfactory. When conditions are favorable for applying water by a surface method, it may be difficult to justify a change to sprinkling.
