ADVANTAGES & DISADVANTAGES OF SPRINKLER SYSTEM


ADVANTAGES OF SPRINKLE SYSTEM

o System losses (runoff, seepage) substantially reduced

o Over irrigation is completely eliminated and uniformity of application is high.

o Irrigation water requirement reduced as compared to other methods.

o No land leveling required in the field and land use for productive purposes can be maximized.

o Fertilizer can be injected in the irrigation water to reach the root zone directly

o The system allows better weed control.



LIMITATIONS OF SPRINKLE SYSTEM

§ Poor uniformity and application efficiency in high wind regimes and / or dry and hot conditions.

§ Capital cost is high with greater operational costs due to higher energy requirements.

§ Not suitable for paddy crops

§ Crops prone to diseases due to moist environment.

§ Water with impurities and sediments may damage the system.
