Spray or sprinkler irrigation is more suitable for large areas, namely watered lawns and meadows. The reason being that with this system a more even irrigation with greater reach can be achieved.
Sprinkler irrigation is technically a process through which water is distributed to plants through sprinklers or water cannons (these devices can be fixed or mobile), and can be influenced by wind.
Micro jet and spray irrigation is similar to sprinkler irrigation, the only difference being the device that spurts out water creates a ‘rain’ effect, meaning the water comes out with less power, similar to a drizzle. Therefore this type of irrigation is used in smaller spaces, where water dispersion can be minimised.
