Description: Eliminating water stress is crucial to achieving good seedling growth and container nurseries use either stationary or mobile overhead irrigation systems. Stationary systems consist of sprinkler heads set in a regular pattern whereas mobile systems have a horizontally-mounted boom that moves back and forth, delivering a uniform amount of water to the crop.
