In James Atkins presentation he covered many areas that focused on various areas of irrigation. He started his presentation with a very interesting act about how the Mayan empire had started the water irrigation through the way of buckets picking up water, later to be carried to the bottom for use. Another interesting fact he mentioned in his presentation was that a million gallons of water use of 10 households in a year, 1 /2 olympic pools, water used by 100 acres of corn in 1 day and 166 tanker loads. James also stated that its so very key how much water a field and its distance from the pivot. On one of the graphs it showed that the farther it got from the gun and right before the water gun that the amount of water was off the point where they wanted it to hit. Irrigation isn’t cheap either with the most expensive irrigation system being $600 to $3500 per acre.
