There are two main types of irrigation systems: low flow and high flow. Low flow systems refer to micro spray, drip emitters, or drip lines. High flow systems are fixed spray, rotor, impact, bubbler, and soaker hose. Drip irrigation is preferable for most parts of the garden except lawns.
Simply so, what are the different types of irrigation systems?
Some common types of irrigation systems include:
- Surface irrigation. Water is distributed over and across land by gravity, no mechanical pump involved.
- Localized irrigation.
- Drip irrigation.
- Sprinkler irrigation.
- Center pivot irrigation.
- Lateral move irrigation.
- Manual irrigation.
What are the systems of irrigation?
CHAPTER 5 - IRRIGATION SYSTEM. The irrigation system consists of a (main) intake structure or (main) pumping station, a conveyance system, a distribution system, a field application system, and a drainage system (see Fig. 69).
