Title Automation of Pivot Sprinkler Irrigation Systems to More Efficiently Utilize Rainfall and Irrigation Water
Description A study was conducted to develop automated pivot sprinkler irrigation systems and determine if such systems use less water and energy than manually operated systems. The study was conducted near Earth, Texas, using irrigation systems located on producers farms. Sensors with transmitters and receivers were constructed and tested so that the irrigation systems can be controlled by wind, soil water tension, and rainfall. The sensors can be used separately or in combination to control the...
