Question

The following are the advantages of the sprinkler method of irrigation except

Options

A) The system can be made automatic

B) They are portable making them suitable for use

C) Rate of application of irrigation water can be controlled

D) The method may be difficult for local farmers to use

The correct answer is D.

Explanation:

Sprinkler irrigation is a method of applying irrigation water which is similar to natural rainfall. Water is distributed through a system of pipes usually by pumping. It is then sprayed into the air through sprinklers so that it breaks up into small water drops which fall to the ground.
The advantages of sprinkler irrigation system are as follows:
- Water measurement is easier than surface irrigation system.
- Less interference with cultivation and less land loss.
- Higher application efficiency.
- High and frequent application can be effectively accomplished.
- Easy mechanization and automation.
The sprinkler system is automatic, portable and can easily be controlled, so it is NOT difficult for local farmers to use.
