Due to the climatic conditions of Iran, the limitations of irrigation resources, and low irrigation efficiency in traditional methods, on the one hand, and the existence of arenas for the development of blue land and the increasing need for food, on the other, application of pressurized irrigation methods as one of the most effective ways to optimally use existing water resources is inevitable (Baradaranhazave et al., 2006). In recent years, the methods of irrigation under pressure, especially the classic sprinkler irrigation with travelling sprinklers have, in general, been used in Fars province, and in the city of Eghlid, in particular. The purpose of the present study was to determine the efficiency of the system after the implementation of the system, the maximum irrigation efficiency of the system, and its difference with the amount available in field conditions.
