Sprinkler Irrigation Systems

Editor's note
The following abstract describes a publication that is only available for purchase. A link to ordering information is on this page.

MidWest Plan Service

This guide tells how to plan, design, and efficiently manage sprinkler irrigation systems. Also discussed is “chemigation,” the process of applying an agricultural chemical (fertilizer or pesticide) to the soil or plant surface with an irrigation system. Dozens of photographs, drawings, tables, and equations complement the text.

Design examples, conversion factors and formulas, a glossary, a detailed index, and reading references complete the book.
