Study on the sprinkler irrigation of rice

Results of experiments on the sprinkler irrigation of rice carried out for 3 years in Plovdiv and Ivailo, Bulgaria, are presented. The sprinkler system used achieved a 67% saving in water applied, for the cost of a 10% drop in yields.

Pratao Precoce (in 1969-70) and IAC 1246 (in 1970-1) was flooded or given natural rainfall only or was supplied with sprinkler irrigation to 40 or 60% of field capacity at depths of 10 or 20 cm. In both cultiva...

Although weed control was not adversely affected by sprinkler as opposed to flood irrigation, the sprinkler system stimulated sheath blight infection. Even when the blight was controlled, yields were only 75% of those with flood irrigation which e...
