Irrigation Flow Measurement
Recording flow

Measuring irrigation flow helps irrigators better manage and schedule irrigation. Measuring flow also is a tool for estimating irrigation water use. This publication will help irrigators learn to select, install and use propeller and ultrasonic flow meters as well as estimate flow without the aid of flow meters.
