The principal advantages of largevolume sprinklers as compared with conventional sprinkler irrigation systems consist of reduced labour requirements and less objectionable working conditions for the operator. These are desirable features provided that they do not contribute to inferior water distribution. There has been a considerable demand by prospective purchasers for information about the recently introduced large rotatingboom sprinklers. This report describes the performance of one of these under the weather conditions encountered in Southern Alberta.
