Nelson Irrigation’s R2000 Series Rotator® Sprinklers are ideal for cranberry bog irrigation.

Rotator sprinklers have proven to be the perfect choice for the unique irrigation challenges of a cranberry bog. Water is a powerful tool for cranberry farms: it’s utilized for disease protection, pest control, as well as frost and heat protection. It is an essential component of cranberry harvest and also effective at protection from winter desiccation and cold injury. Whether on a peat or sand bog, Rotator sprinklers are reliable and high-uniformity performers. They do not create or suffer from riser shaking or have the heavy water application next to the riser that is seen with impact sprinklers. Nelson Irrigation's detachable riser options make Rotator sprinklers easy to remove and reinstall in the bog, and will not get stuck like turf pop-ups do in this demanding environment. The R2000 Rotator is available in a variety of trajectories that can help in windy farm locations. For higher flow rate and wider spacing options, the R2000WF Windfighter and R33NV are excellent cranberry bog sprinklers.

Irrigating cranberries is a complicated task that depends on everything from your region to your choice of valve. Explore some of the Nelson products commonly used for cranberries below, or get in touch with the territory manager in your area so we can help find the right solution for you.
