Sprinkler irrigation is a method of applying irrigation water in a similar way to natural rainfall. Water is distributed though a system of pipes and is then sprayed into the air through sprinklers, so that it breaks up into small water drops which fall to the ground.
The sprinkler systems we construct irrigate whole fields, and can significantly improve the quality of fine-leaved crops such as coriander, as well as enhancing the uniformity of crops.
A further advantage of these systems is that it becomes possible to irrigate a field during short periods when electricity supplies are available, reducing human resource inputs. Whilst traditional flood irrigation requires the efforts of a whole family for 6-8 hours, sprinklers mean one person alone can complete this task in a few hours.
