About the Practice
Problem Statement:

A lot of water is wasted.


The existing flood irrigation system requires ample amount of water. Drip and sprinkler irrigation systems utilize water efficiently but it is very difficult to irrigate long and dense crops by them and in short duration. The existing sprinklers are moving discharge sprinklers; single nozzle assemblies, which have been employed with a deflector, used to breakup the single fluid stream. In these moving discharge sprinklers, the deflector and the nozzle assembly have each been separately driven by gear connections to the transmission.
