Scott Sanford is a distinguished outreach specialist in the Biological Systems Engineering Department working in the areas of irrigation water management and energy.
If you are not currently an irrigator, but are thinking about purchasing a system, this module will provide you with the basic system components (water sources, pumping systems, piping, distribution/application methods and system controls). The discussion includes the advantages and disadvantages of different well and pump types along with different types of water delivery systems (sprinkler and drip). The approximate costs for equipment and operation of various types of systems is also included.
