Advantages and Classification of Sprinkler Irrigation Technology

Sprinkler Irrigation is a technique for applying a water system which is like precipitation. Water is disseminated through an arrangement of funnels for the most part by siphoning. It is then showered into the air and inundated whole soil surface through splash heads with the goal that it separates into little water drops which tumble to the ground

Advantages of Sprinkler irrigation:

*Water sparing

*Increment in yield

*Versatility of framework

*May likewise be utilized for undulating territory

*Spares land as no bunds and so forth are required

*Impacts more noteworthy helpful small scale atmosphere

General Classification of different types of sprinkle irrigation:

Rotating Head:

Little size spouts are put on riser pipes fixed at uniform spans along the length of the parallel funnel and the horizontal channels are typically laid on the ground surface. They may likewise be mounted on posts over the yield tallness and pivoted through 90 degrees, to inundate a rectangular strip. In turning type sprinklers, the most well-known gadget to pivot the sprinkler heads is with a little sledge enacted by the push of water striking against a vane associated with it

Perforated Pipe System:

This type of technique comprises of penetrated openings or spouts along with their length through which the water is showered under tension. This framework is generally intended for moderately low weight (1kg/cm2). The application rate ranges from 1.25 to 5cm for every hour for different weight and dispersing.

Based on the Protability:

1.Portable System:

In this system laterals and sprinklers can easily shift from one to other places.

2.Permanent System:

In this system laterals and sprinklers are fixed permanently.

3.Semi-Permanent System:

In this system laterals are fixed, sprinklers can easily shift from one to other places.
