Study of Different Positions of Sprinklers for Irrigation System
The use of sprinkler is becoming prevalent day by day. A sprinkler system should be designed to apply water homogeneously without erosion or runoff. The sprinkler application rate of the system should be harmonized to the infiltration rate of the most restrictive soil in the field. If the application rate exceeds the soil intake rate, the water will run off the field or relocate within the field resulting in over and under watered areas. Three different sprinkler systems for irrigation purpose are proposed in this paper. The three different systems are stating the configuration of the sprinklers as at between 2 rows but on height with 2 sprinklers, on plants at topmost position and on plants at topmost position but 2 sprinklers at position. The comparison based on the eleven points amongst the three configurations along with the traditional sprinkling system is made and further the most suitable configuration of sprinkler system is predicted.
