|Any shape and size field can be irrigated.||No wastage of valuable land through fall-out corners.|
|Steep slopes can be irrigated easily.||Wind resistant due to the fact that the
Floppy Sprinkler makes uniform medium sized droplets with no mist formation.
|Fertigation, chemigation and foliar feeding
can easily and accurately be done through the system.
|Different crops with different water requirements can be grown under this system.|
|A variety of crops and crops in different growth stages
can be cultivated under the system ~ irrigating each block
to its own requirements.

and no maintenance.
|Scheduling and management are easy to do resulting in
yield increases of between 15% and 30% but
up to 60% has been reported.
