The development of linear move irrigation in the United States

Auteur :
MCKNIGHT, T. L.

Description :
Since the late 1970s, an irrigation technology called linear move has been introduced into California's valleys and then elsewhere. In spite of their high cost, these wheeled machines of interconnected pipes are adopted because they require little labor and use water efficiently. However, they require large rectangular blocks of flat land. - (DWG)
