Annual Water Demand Reported by Irrigation System

Table C

The crop irrigation demand can also be reported by irrigation system type as shown in Table C.


The total area that is currently irrigated by efficient systems such as drip, microsprinkler or microspray is relatively small as forage is the predominant crop type.

Sprinkler and travelling gun systems used on forage and pasture crops account for 80% of the irrigation system types.
