To him it means bringing into production an additional 260 acres of gopd land, using only 1/3 as much water, elim inating soil crusting, and being sure of seed germination, among the many advantages. The Spatzierath sprinkler system is in two identical units. Each one includes a motor and pump mounted on a rubber tired trailer. The diesel motors used develop 38 to 40 h. p. each. The pumps will develop 34 to 36 pounds pressure. Each system has a quarter-mile of main line pipe and a quarter-mile of sprinkler pipe. There are 32 revolving head type sprinklers that throw out about 8 gallons per minute. 1 There is another 4-wheel trailer to haul the pipe from field to field. The aluminum pipe is in 20-foot sec tions and because of the light weight, two sections are moved at a time in the field without uncoupling. The sections are hooked together with no-stoop, quick couplers. One man can move the pipe down the field to a new setting in about one hour. The system was delivered in July of last year and used on about 360 acres of land. Late irrigation was given 100 acres of beets and 260 V. •• ill : : Two heel harvesters seen at work at the Spatzierath farm. Mr. Spatzierath's three sons. Max.

When once set up, the systems were used night and day during the dry periods. No Crusting. Less Water According to Spatzierath, there is no crusting of the soil surface as with furrow irrigation. And he be lieves that gravity irrigation would use three times as much water as the new sprinkler system uses. Germination of beets, grain or any crops on the place is a cinch with rain when it's needed. About 260 acres of land can now be irrigated that was beyond the ditches. Irriga tion water is available the year around by pumping from the river.
