Created for the irrigation designer and installer, as well as students, Simplified Irrigation Design clearly explains irrigation design and related hydraulics, without the need for interpretation by teachers.

Just a few of the new features include: * Methods of conserving water to help you anticipate your clients' environmental concerns * Computerized methods for managing labor and irrigation systems that will help you save money on labor and water costs * Metric values for every Imperial (U.S. ) measurement, enabling you to meet federal metric guidelines and better communicate with an international audience.
