II. Description of the System Cablegation is an automated method of supplying water for surface irrigation. The system can save labor and water compared to other surface application methods. A. F O R SUPPLYING WATER TO FURROWS 1. The Physical System Cablegation (as described for furrow irrigation by Kemper et al., ) is a form of gated-pipe by:   We have an in-ground sprinkler system.

Water Resources (Hydrology & Irrigation) Books . Download Irrigation Engineering By – Irrigation involves the artificial application of water to soil, usually for assisting the growth of crops in dry areas or where there is a shortage of rainfall. As the process of agriculture becomes increasingly mechanised, the application of scientific methods and technology to the procedure of irrigation comes as no surprise.

Michael Tenn, CLIA, has worked in the landscaping industry professionally for the last 14 years. He has designed, built and repaired hundreds of sprinkler systems. He is a licensed landscape and irrigation contractor, a certified water auditor, and a certified backflow s: 3. As competition intensified and water sources became limited, successful irrigation farmers reduced labor input and increased application efficiency of their irrigation. Sprinkler systems, such as the center pivot, enabled them to do both. While energy costs were low, the economic feasibility of sprinkler irrigation was by: Get this from a library!

Schematic diagram of a cablegation furrow irrigation system Hydraulically, a cablegation system operates in the free surface flow regime upstream of the travelling plug except immediately adjacent to it. In the region near the plug, the flow is slowed and expands to fill the pipe.
