Author: Menachem Cohen, Chief design engineer , NaanDanJain

This article presents a new sprinkler irrigation method for total coverage of the area. You may ask what can be new about this irrigation method, which is known around the world and is used to irrigate many crops. The new method combines the advantages of the conventional irrigation method (wetting the entire area) with the advantages of low volume irrigation (precipitation rates that are adapted to the rate that water is absorbed by the soil). This irrigation method serves a variety of crops, such as sugar beet, potatoes and leaf vegetables.
