Abstract

Continuous lateral move irrigators are distinctly superior means of irrigating farmland. Presently, no means exists to affordably, reliability, and efficiently connect the laterally traveling irrigator with a stationary mainline. Consequently, most irrigation is presently accomplished with much less efficient means. Water, electricity and fertilizer are wasted resulting in reduced yield and groundwater pollution.
